In this time of thanks and giving, surrounded by loved ones, food and comfort, my problems are small and my blessings are large -- a luxury I know most of the world does not share. And while I can rationalize my blessings as God's will, I can't help but feel survivor's remorse. It becomes cruel to view privilege and opportunity as a lifeboat, room only for a lucky few. This Thanksgiving I offer a simple toast: "We're going to need a bigger boat."
