Thursday is Thanksgiving Day. My feed has had a number of posts on it reminding me of the plight of the Native Americans.
Lincoln made Thanksgiving Day a national holiday during the Civil War.
As I have grown older the Native American and Pilgrim narrative has become meaningless in my celebration of Thanksgiving.
What has become far more important is it being a day on which I give thanks for having made it through another year. Tina is 80 and I am 72. Life was never easy for either of us. Sometimes we made it harder for ourselves and sometimes life has just been hard and mean.
Yet I am thankful for having found the strength to hold true to my values, for not having lost sight of the importance of doing what I can to make the world a better place.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
