While sticklers point out that the year 2000 does not technically mark the beginning of a new millennium, the distinction does nothing to dim the excitement of being around at the dawning of this new age. Consider how many people have lived before us and never got to work with a new first digit in a four- digit year. We share this honor only with the people of year 999. I'm thankful for much. Here is a sampling of the many reasons I have to gjve thanks on this Thanksgiving milestone. In no particular order, I'm thankful: B That Christopher Columbus decided to look for a shortcut. • That Squanto and Massasoit decided to help Miles Standish and the Pilgrim settlers out in 1621. If it weren't for them, the few remaining Pilgrims might have called it a day and we wouldn't be celebrating Thanksgiving. B For all those early heroes such as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Nathan Hale who made freedom a reality. B For all the heroes who came after them to protect that freedom. B For Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King, who gave their lives so that people of all colors can drink from the same water fountain in the same school no matter where in the country that the school is located. B For the tenacity of Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton who, never believed that they weren't equal, fl For decent health. • For my children whether laughing or whining. • For my husband whether laughing or whining. • For my friends whether laughing, whining or exploiting my every fault during my major milestone birthday festivities, fl For being able to live in a community blessed with assets that allow it to move forward on a millennium carillon project costing more than $6 million. • B That I live in a community made up of people who question themselves as to whether it is appropriate to spend more than $6 million on a millennium carillon project. • To live in a state where people are concerned about whether seven kids get to go to school in Decatur. I'm thankful that people cared enough to adopt zero-tolerance policies, cared enough to argue over Sign up for theater, shopping trips The Naperville Park District will sponsor a variety of day trips and tours for adults, kids and seniors tliis season.
