…to all of you.
Given recent events, I’m sure it will be a contentious gathering in millions of homes across the country. That’s a shame, because we ought, if we really want, to be able to put social and political externalities aside for one day.
Thanksgiving is a beautiful holiday, and a necessary idea. All it needs to make it work is for us to spend a few hours, together with those we love the most, being grateful for the things we have, instead of sullen about the things we don’t. The effect, if we can achieve it, is good, and lasting. But to achieve it requires, sometimes, a measure of inner discipline, and an inkling of the transcendent — both of which are in increasingly short supply these days.
Good luck and good wishes to you! I think we all have much to be thankful for. I know I do, and as always I thank you, readers, for visiting and commenting.
