This year, we will give thanks for the restoration of our badly flooded basements and the loss of many important items stored there.
We also are most thankful for our politicians in the New York City Council, State Assembly, State Senate, U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives, who have been very helpful in getting funds on all levels of government to help rebuild and compensate for severe losses from last year’s superstorm.
More help is needed for the hardest hit victims of Sandy.
With so many scandals cropping up daily of legislators’ wrongdoings, the enormous greed and stinginess of our Congress, people are so bitter about bad politicians that they don’t even vote in primaries and elections — a huge mistake!
The outcome of this year’s election is a hopeful sign that our city may have more equity for the struggling majority and more responsibility from the very well-to-do.
We give thanks for a chance to be better off and healthier.
