RAVE FOR THE USA. This Thanksgiving I am thankful to live in a country where I am free and opportunity abounds. Let's just do our best to keep it.

I WOULD LIKE to thank my father, 88 years old, who passed away Nov. 3. Dad, thank you for a fine life and being a fine father. From a fellow veteran, your son Jim. I love you. Take care.

THIS IS A RAVE for the two gentlemen on Peach Orchard Road who stopped and helped my husband and daughter put the wood into our truck. It's good to know that there are still kind people in the world. God bless you both.

A HUGE RAVE to the Augusta Richmond County Historical Society for commissioning filmmaker Mark Albertin to produce War Stories -- Augusta Area Veterans Remember World War II . It is a treasured tribute.

A RAVE FOR Richmond County Deputy Ronnie Phillips for saving a man's life at Kmart North Augusta while doing some off-duty shopping. That CPR class really paid off for someone. Great job!

I'M GLAD TO be an American. I'm glad to live in Aiken.

A WONDERFUL RAVE for the young lady, Betsy, who calls bingo at the Evans McDonald's on Thursday mornings. She is just wonderful, and all of us love her.

SUPER RAVE FOR a nice woman at Fort Gordon (didn't get your name) who found my wallet in the parking lot at the PX. Now I know that there are still some wonderful honest people out here. Thanks again. You will get it back tenfold.

THIS IS A RAVE for two Fort Gordon soldiers, Spcs. Ivey and Story. They came to my aid when I was trying to fix a flat and could not get the lugs off. During their lunch hour they stopped by my truck, they came over, were able to get the lugs off and crawled under my truck and put the jack on. They went so far as to change my tire. What a nice pair of people they were. Their parents should be proud of them for the way they have been raised. They speak highly for the service people out at Fort Gordon, also. I asked them if I might treat them to a lunch, and they declined. What a nice couple of young soldiers they are. Again, a public rave to these two young people.

What this country really

What this country really needs is a President who doesn't pardon the turkey.

The other news outlets are

The other news outlets are reporting a double homicide in Augusta. Two women's bodies were found in an alley off Laney-Walker. It's a shame Augusta can't even get through a holiday without some kind of violence.

I share the rave for the

I share the rave for the newly released documentary "War Stories -- Augusta Area Veterans Remember World War II." I value my copy and have watched it three times already. It is a moving first hand account of a different time in American/Augusta history by real American hero's. I think it should be viewed in every classroom. Thanks to the participants ( I saw one in the obits earlier this week) and those who made this DVD available.

I am glad that that AC saw

I am glad that that AC saw fit to publish raves on a day that we all should be giving thanks. I am also glad that they allow me to comment and even sometimes scold me when I post the wrong thing. Thanks to God, thanks for my family, and thanks to all of you regular commentors that let me jump in and don't destroy me when I have said the wrong thing.

the fact that there are

the fact that there are nothing but positive comments about things that truly matter (people's actions) has restored a little hope to my faith in humanity. May God (or your creator) bless you all this holiday season. Happy Thanksgiving.
