At least not nearly as frequently as we'd like to/promise ourselves we will/tell others we do.

What’s with all the political posturing and saber-rattling by our “desk jockey admirals and generals” in the House and Senate? We see them rabidly calling for everything short of “carpet bombing” Tehran and turning it into another Dresden. Of course, none (or almost none) of the military-aged sons (or daughters for that matter) of these politicians have ever been in or ever will be in the U.S. military and have to fight in the wars that their mommies and daddies vote for.
The nuclear deal brokered by the United States and Iran in Geneva is historic. Just as the agreement to peacefully disarm Syria of its chemical weapons demonstrated, diplomacy makes the world a safer place.

Half a century ago, Sid Davis was the first journalist to learn John Kennedy had died. Instead of breaking the biggest the biggest news story in the world, he waited because he wanted to make sure he was right. It is hard to image a journalist making the same choice nowadays amid our modern cacophony of inaccurate reporting, but perhaps Davis has something to teach us.
Thanksgiving is a once a year memorable reminder of the goodness of God in this nation. As we think of our history, the American custom of Thanksgiving transcends cultures and stands as a truly American tradition.
