Happy Canadian Thanksgiving
In our troubled world we have much to be thankful for this Canadian Thanksgiving Weekend as we think of those far less fortunate suffering the indignity of war at the whims of deranged and despotic leadership.

A memorable moment of beautiful sportsmanship when Naomi Osaka supported Coco Gauff after her loss in their Third Round match in this year’s US Open Tennis Championship. In our time of universal uncertainty this was truly an uplifting moment and shows the best of what we can all aspire to. Thank you Naomi.
