While you all are finishing up your turkey, dressing & such and preparing for your evening of blissful shopping or post dinner drinking, remember that not everyone celebrates this Day of Thanks as we call it in these United States of America.
Some of use, yours truly being among them, look back at the origins of things and see them for what they truly are…
Starting in 1970, The Native Americans of New England mark the 4th Thursday of November with a protest. For many, Thanksgiving is a cruel reminder of the genocide, theft of land, and suffering that has been inflected upon the people who are native to this land we call America.
The ultimate goal of the #NationalDayOfMourning is to inform the average American of the true history of this ‘holiday’.
So in-between bites/drinks/purchases tonight, please take a few minutes to think about exactly why you celebrate Thanksgiving…
