Tomorrow, Thursday, November 24, 2016, will be observed as Thanksgiving Day in the United States(US) - to commemorate the life-saving efforts Native Americans provided to the Pilgrims upon the founding of the colony that would later evolve into a Super Power.
However, tomorrow's celebration in the US could be overshadowed by a greater need to give thanks in the Latin American country of Colombia, where its government and Farc rebels, who have been fighting for 52-years, will sign a redrawn Peace Agreement that offers peace to the beautiful people and landscapes of Colombia.
An earlier agreement between the government and the rebels was denied at referendum by Colombian voters on November 2. But with continued support for peace mediated by Cuba and Norway and fully supported by Colombia's President Juan Manuel Santos, who was awarded this year's Noble Peace Prize for supporting the agreement, a redrawn peace agreement will be signed tomorrow.
A couple weeks ago, the parties to the peace deal agreed to a redo of the agreement after the original deal was defeated by 50.2 percent of the vote on November 2, under suspicions the plan was too lenient to rebels. The new deal will be put to Colombia's Congress for a vote instead of the people.
Under the redrawn peace agreement, the Farc, among other things, is expected to declare all its assets and hand them over to be used as reparations for the victims of the 52-year-old conflict; and to provide information about any drug trafficking in which they may have been involved.
Tomorrow offers reasons for thanksgiving in Colombia as hopes to peace, to stability and to prosperity engulf a nation of conflict-weary people.
