Recently as I was going through my daily routines, I ran across a very happy recipient of a Christmas turkey furnished by state Sen. Anthony Cannella's office and his capable staff. It just reminded me of the great country we live in.
What prompted this overwhelming feeling of our nation was the visit to the U.S. Capitol and the privilege of attending the president's inauguration. Often, it is the smallest things that warm the hearts and the stomachs of those in need.
I would like to offer a belated thanks to Cannella and his staff for thinking about his constituents in the Modesto area and for allowing me to be part of the distribution of the Christmas turkeys.
