I don't always do this, but this Thanksgiving I'm going to make a list of the many things for which I'm thankful.
Among these things are the many examples of seen of people who have risen above the limitations of prejudice and bigotry to welcome those who need who need new homes and communities and to offer support to those who have been the victims of vandalism and hatred. 7-year-old Jack Swanson is a shining example.
We can also take comfort in seeing how animals don't see themselves as separated by species.
If you celebrate Thanksgiving, I wish you a blessed day and reasons every day to feel blessed.
