as we come to this day of giving thanks, and as i taste the salty juxtaposition of festive family feasts with such fear and famine around the world, there seems to be a great deal that is unsettled inside me. there is less and less that i know for certain, and more and more that leaves me searching, hoping, praying. but one thing i know without a hint of doubt is that i am thankful for my family. they are the song i keep singing, the beat that pounds in my chest, and the reason i can smile and laugh in such a time as this and in such a world as this. i am beyond blessed. and i am thankful. i can only pray the same for you.
