Americadoes celebrate Thanksgiving today. A day of full of food, drink, football, floats, and dog shows. It’s also supposed to be a day of thanks. Ignoring the loooong history of hypocrisy inherent, it’s a worthwhile sentiment. So please feel free to post something that you’re thankful for this year if you’re of the mind. Doesn’t have to be big, doesn’t have to be meaningful, you don’t have to do it at all. But some sort of bright spot is nice.
I’m thankful that I haven’t lost anyone this year. And there were some close calls, to be sure. Too many positive cases, one too many hospitalizations, but as far as it goes with my friends and family, at least I have that.
I’m also thankful for this community whom I can always rely on to provide some clarity or levity during what has turned out to be another very dark year. Thank you all for that.
If you’re lucky, no one is talking politics at your tables today. But not everyone gets that chance. So, come here to vent, come here to snark, talk about any other countries’ politics or events that are occurring. Have a good day everyone!
