It’s Thanksgiving, the time of year when we come together to celebrate the story of two cultures welcoming one another at the same table. We could learn a lot from that these days. Our differences make our world richer, deeper and we should embrace them.
One culture taught the other how to survive in the new world and were later repaid with small pox blankets, war and near annihilation. We can all identify with this, no? Who hasn’t welcomed someone into their life, only to be met with betrayal? We have to learn from it, pick ourselves up from the ashes, and move on. (Oh, and hope that they die in a fire)
In modern culture we’re taught that this is the time of year in which we give thanks for that which we are grateful. In these rough economic times that have so many people struggling, it’s good to take a moment, a breath, and realize what’s good in our lives.
What made your list this year?
