It always sounds so cliché to say Thanksgiving is a time we need to reflect on what we are thankful for. In truth, given the challenges we all face, every day is proving to be an exercise in giving thanks: for enough food to eat, enough money to pay for that roof over our heads, the basic utilities that are life’s necessities, and of course, our (mental) health, or just the fact that we, or loved ones, survived COVID. As you see from today’s headlines, challenges to our democratic future, injustices and Mother Nature still pose obstacles but we can prevail as long as we have reason, compassion and empathy. I wish you all a peaceful Thanksgiving surrounded by family and friends.
