Giving Thanks…

…Since I have become more aware of what the true history of the treatment of Native Americans, I approach Thanksgiving with mixed feelings…

I want to give Thanks, but I also have to acknowledge that the Natives are thinking “Oh, hell, no…”

I give thanks for every glass of water.  Every meal that I have to eat.  I give thanks for another day when the sun comes up in the morning.  I have become closer to God in the simple practice of giving thanks.
