I had a lot of stuff I thought about writing tonight – Thanksgiving as a tradition and all the ways it is celebrated, but after a day full of food and friends, I find my brain just wants to rest.
When I think of it, the things for which I am thankful don’t change much from year to year. My family is always first and foremost among them. Friends are next, along with freedom; freedom to live and raise our kids as we see fit, freedom to write this blog and criticize things like our compulsory school system. As imperfect as our country is, I am always acutely aware that my ability to criticize those imperfections is what makes it great. Health is in there, as is being grateful that we have food, a home and the privilege of living in New York City.
I hope you had a day full of good things, and that you all have reason to be thankful.
