"Play it safe." "Don't take chances." "Be Careful." "Only do what you know will succeed." All things a cautious parent might say to protect their children.

The Two Sides of Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving! Seems appropriate to be cheerful and grateful on a day like this. The believers in Baghdad, Iraq have learned that 'gratefulness' and 'cheerfulness' don't always go hand-in-hand. They've had a tough row to hoe for some time now. But there's no mistaking their passion, faith, and even joy in extraordinary difficulties. Paul says "I've learned to be content in all circumstances - in plenty and in want..." So there are really two sides to Thanksgiving. Cher joins Norm in studio for this truthful, faith-building and even sobering look at how those far from our comfort and ease give thanks today. As a result, perhaps you'll give special thanks for them on this special day.
