Here Are Some Things I Am Thankful For—All People Matter
Thursday is Thanksgiving Day.
I hope you have a good Thanksgiving however you spend the holiday.
You don’t have to spend the day with family.
Maybe you don’t have family.
All people matter and the circumstances of your life have meaning and are of equal value to how others are living.
I take Thanksgiving Day seriously.
It is a day we can use to reflect.
I’m thankful that each new day is a new chance to do our best in a difficult world.
I’m thankful for complexity, contradiction and clarity.
I’m thankful for the capacity to think, learn and create.
I’m thankful for the ability to communicate.
I’m thankful for the people in my life.
I’m thankful I have ancestors who were Massachusetts Puritans and other ancestors who were from Southern Italy.
I’m thankful that the lives of other people have value.
I’m thankful for the ability to see and do right as I see right.
I’m thankful for the Earth and all existence that allows us to live. I’m thankful for the Earth in its natural state and for how we use the Earth so that we can live.
Please have a good Thanksgiving.
