Veteran’s day was a few weeks ago. That’s the day when we all try to devote a few minutes of our day to remember the tragedy of war, the hardships of soldiers. It’s about taking the time, pausing to reflect on what we’ve lost.
Tomorrow, though. Tomorrow is about thankfulness, it’s about celebrating what we have, it’s about family, and community; fellowship and plentifulness. But I urge you not to forget those that aren’t with their families. The losses, and the sacrifices that were made over decades so that we can sit and be thankful. Be thankful to them; be thankful to them by remembering them.
And while it’s not always pleasant, we shouldn’t turn our attention too far from the origins of this holiday, to the great losses of life, the decimation of the Native Americas and the people who suffered, and who continue to suffer. Remember them too, because the only way to stop atrocities from happening in the future, is not to forget the horrors of the past.
For those here that are missing family, friends or loved ones -- for those here who don’t feel they have a lot to be thankful for, I’m sorry. I know the next few days will be difficult, and the month to come even more so. But please don’t be afraid to reach out to people if you need to -- and those of you that have a place here, that have made a live here, I urge you to be generous, and to be as welcoming as you’d want someone to be for you.
I deeply hope that everyone has a good Thanksgiving tomorrow, and a good weekend ahead. Have a gracious and happy holiday.
And one more thing: Try not to get killed at any stores on Friday.

I think Ward has mentioned that I wanted to talk to you about your condition, and about what I might be able to do to help.[Filter to Felicia Hardy & Natasha Romanoff]
Just a few quick business matters to tie up, before this goes on any longer. We’ve negotiated Stark down to 34% of the shares, he’ll keep his own patents, and in the event that my Tony Stark comes back, all but 8 of mine and Natasha’s voting shares revert back to him, giving him the majority. From there, we can decide what happens, depending on what seems fair at the time. Otherwise, business should continue as usual with everyone focusing on their own projects, and without any infrastructure changes. The Bruce Banner from that world will also be taken on as an employee.[Filter to Tony Stark & Bruce Banner]
If anyone has anything they’d like to add, or if this doesn’t work, let’s talk about how that can be fixed so we can get this done before employees come back after the holidays. And speaking of, Felicia, who do you think we should talk to about a location for organising a Christmas party?
And someone should probably put up a post wishing Stark Industries a good thanksgiving holiday, of course. Natasha, would you like to do that honor?
I need you both to do something for me, and I need you to not tell me that I’m crazy when I explain to you what it is.[Filter to Skye & Simmons]
I did, actually, want to take the additional opportunity to personally wish you both a very happy thanksgiving. Honestly, all the best. I don’t believe I’ll be able to make the dinner at the Avengers warehouse tomorrow, and I’m sorry for that, but I hope you have a fantastic time, and a wonderful holiday.[Filter to Grant Ward
Do you have somewhere to go tomorrow? For Thanksgiving, I mean.[Filter to Bucky Barnes]
Do you remember the Thanksgiving we had -- ‘37, I think. When Mrs. Norcerino sent her two sons down with that meatloaf she made just for us, ‘cause she knew we’d never impose on her family dinner? I still think it was the best meatloaf that I’ve ever had.
