A final note on the Thanksgiving tour

The B3 family made it back to Pittsburgh safely on Friday and we were able to enjoy a family dinner on Saturday. I’ve always felt fortunate to be able to have the kinds of feast many of us have grown accustomed to, but after our trip to Staten Island and Coney Island, I definitely felt I brought a lot more perspective to the table.

I wanted to leave you with the video from Coney Island, featuring former big leaguer John Halama and Nate Bliss from the Alliance for Coney Island. It was truly amazing what they’re doing there and again, thanks to Mr. Halama for coming out to assist.

I also wanted to remind everyone — a reminder to myself as well — that there is still a tremendous amount of work to be done in the areas devastated by Sandy. Keep that in mind as you make decisions on where to make your charitable donations moving forward.
