YOUR GUIDE TO PERSONAL INJURY IN THE BORDERLAND
COUNTING MY BLESSINGS
With November comes Thanksgiving — a time to give thanks for all our blessings. With the recent tragedy in El Paso, however, I am finding it difficult to reflect on my own blessings when there are many others who are still struggling and mourning. I keep a journal, and some of the things I jot down in it are my daily blessings, whether they are about
to reach the highest levels of success. I am a product of the American school system and owe much of my success to the rights and opportunities afforded to me as an American. No doubt, we need to do more to ensure that all people in our country have the same opportunities I had, but we can affect that change through the democratic process guaranteed to us in the Constitution. I am also grateful for my family. I am so blessed to have a loving wife and healthy children. My mom lives here in El Paso, as well, and I’m happy we get to spend time with her every single day. We are surrounded by love from the rest of our family here in El Paso and elsewhere. I am also grateful for our clients and for the opportunity to serve each and every one of them in their times of need. When I started Harmonson Law Firm in late 2012, I did not have a single client. Since then, we have had the opportunity to help hundreds of El Pasoans when they weren’t sure where to turn. When I started the firm, I was a solo lawyer with no employees. Today, we have two lawyers, excellent referral partners, and a full support staff. That growth would not have been possible without our clients trusting us with their cases. We have been fortunate to help all sorts of people, from those facing catastrophic injuries to families of those killed in fatal accidents and people suffering from minor but nevertheless impactful injuries. I am truly grateful for those of you who are our clients and extend a heartfelt thank-you for letting us help you! I hope all of you have a wonderful November and a happy Thanksgiving. Enjoy the cooler weather that fall brings — it’s my favorite season! Most importantly, though, cherish your time with family as we all look back and give thanks for our blessings. – Clark Harmonson
a person, an event, or something special in my life. While it has been hard to keep up with this gratitude journal lately, I know there are so many things I am grateful for. For one, I feel lucky to live in El Paso, the greatest city in Texas. The fine people of El Paso have always been the reason this city holds such a soft spot in my heart. Instead of tearing us down, the Walmart shooting has only made us stronger as a community. The outpouring of love, comfort, help, and solidarity has been tremendous. I am also proud of our politicians and leaders who are standing up for our community and against racism in any form. In El Paso, we are better not despite our diversity but because of it. Thank you, Beto O’Rourke, Veronica Escobar, Joe Moody, and others for letting the world know who we El Pasoans are. We are setting an example for what our country should aspire to be. I am also proud and grateful to be an American. In my lifetime, there has never been such effort to divide us as a country. We all have our own political ideologies, and I am not immune to my own partisan affiliation. Despite our problems, I can think of no other country in which I would want to live.
America is, by and large, still a meritocracy. I believe that America affords people with enough skill and imagination
