Gathering for Thanksgiving
From the Editor-

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. How can we be thankful together, as families, as communities, as a nation? Thanksgiving, along with July 4th, is the foundational American holiday. It is more than bedrock: the holiday honors English speaking Europeans surviving and starting to take root on the Massachusetts shore of what would become the United States.
Thanksgiving. By definition giving thanks is plural, communal. It recognizes the others in the community, those we are showing appreciation for for the help they have given to us. We are thankful, thanking you for what you have provided to us.
