So here in the US it’s Thanksgiving, which is a day to spend with family and friends and eat so much food you either pass out into a food coma or throw up… maybe one and then the other, depending.
It’s also a day for being thankful for what we have and remembering those we’ve lost over the years. I’ve got a lot to be thankful for this year so I thought I would share. I have a good job with good coworkers. I have a roof over my head and food in the fridge. I have a great family.
I can’t say that the holiday itself doesn’t have its problems being rooted in the suppression/oppression of the Native Americans. It’s a terrible symbol to a lot of people and something we shouldn’t forget or gloss over. Hopefully one day it will evolve into a holiday that’s just about honoring family and friends.
So just a short note to say I hope everyone had a wonderful day with their loved ones or spent the day however they pleased. And for those who are outside the US or don’t celebrate, I hope you had a wonderful day just for being you. :o)
