Happy Thanksgiving, America! (post by Anna)
Tomorrow, Americans celebrate one of our most-cherished holidays, Thanksgiving. We look back on our nation’s history with appreciation for everything it has given us, and we gather with family and friends to appreciate the time we have with them. Despite all the bad things that have happened in this country of late, we still have a lot to be thankful for this year and every year.
The number-one thing I’m grateful for is life. We live in a beautiful, amazing world full of so many, varied kinds of living things from the microscopic to the enormous. As a fan of history and prehistory (those eons before written records), I’m constantly amazed by the diversity of life on this incredible planet, both present and past. Human life, despite it foibles, remains one of the most wonderful aspects of this world.
Life is truly a gift, and I’m thankful for it.
What are you thankful for this year?
