Ronald Aronson on Gratitude

Here’s my thought for the day, which is a useful substitute for writing a new post. It comes from the book Living Without God, published last year by Counterpoint.

“Our daily survival and functioning depends on dozens, hundreds, thousands of links. We belong to family and to all the obvious structures, networks, and processes–of work, friends, neighborhood, city and nation (as well as natural environment)–and to a social universe of which we usually remain unconscious. If we train our awareness on how structures and networks and processes are actualized around the world, we will eventually notice those whose work daily makes our lives possible, just as our work in some small way contributes to making them and their lives possible–our interdependence.”
