It's good to give thanks just for being alive and being able to live the lives we do. Sometimes whole countries' fortunes and directions rely on small events. Who knows what the state of the USA would have been if Guy Fawkes had been successful and blown up the Houses of Parliament? It would make an interesting topic for a movie. Perhaps England would today be a Catholic country; and even the USA. Hmm... Sounds like a post for another day.
So, if you are celebrating Firework Night today - stay safe and 'Remember, remember, the fifth of November. Gunfire, treason and plot.'
