Although we don't celebrate Thanksgiving in Australia, I am thankful for the different sets of friends that I have. Friends I know through school, Scouts, Gang Show, online game show groups, online art galleries (including deviantART), and lastly (but by no means least) my own family.
On a sad note however, those of you who are familiar with the summer sport of cricket would have heard that Australian batsman Phillip Hughes received a head injury during a Sheffield Shield match played in Sydney on Tuesday. Early this afternoon (Australian Eastern Daylight Savings Time), Hughes was pronounced dead, just days before what would have been his 26th birthday this coming Sunday.
Hughes had played at various levels for the South Australian team, also Worcestershire in England and the Australian team.
