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. ( [Filter to John Garrett] )( [Filter to Felicia Hardy & Natasha Romanoff] )( [Filter to Tony Stark & Bruce Banner] )( [Filter to Skye & Simmons] )( [Filter to Grant Ward] )( [Filter to Bucky Barnes] )
