During the holiday season I always feel especially thankful for the blessings I have received as an American. I am especially thankful that I have shelter with electricity and running water. I have food and family.
There are many people in our county including families and teenagers that don’t have even these basic necessities. I encourage everyone who can to give to the local charities that help feed and shelter the homeless such as the Cocoon House and the Everett Gospel Mission.
