Thankfulness: More than a season

Martha Hoffman, Editor-In-Chief

There is so much to be grateful for this time of year.

It is the season of good food, familiar holiday traditions and time spent with family and friends.

Here at the Leader, we are thankful for our Assistant Editor Stephanie Bias who is graduating at the end of this semester and heading to Iowa State. We wish her the best, even as we will miss her lively writing and skillful editing here on staff.

Maybe you are glad that we are almost done with the semester, and a month of break is only a few weeks away. Perhaps friends, new opportunities and bright plans for the future top your list.

Let us all remember that we are blessed with so much more than we deserve in spite of the challenges we face.

Do you think this is something to keep in mind all year, regardless of the season?
