With the invention of the internet and social media, the world has shrunken to an extent that our fore father’s could never have imagined; making empathy, understanding, and acceptance more important than ever before.
We post comments, thoughts, and opinions openly and abundantly everyday focused on our own life, community, and everyday events forgetting that these voiced words are being read daily around the world, possibly affecting an even farther reach than we intended.
I mention this because, with the holidays upon us there are bound to be an abundance of good wishes, politically correct modifications, and commentaries on those who take offence. My hope is that whether you yourself celebrate a specific holiday or another version, that you accept all holiday greetings in the spirit that they were meant, full of love, friendship, and peacefulness among humanity; just as this season is supposed to represent.
That said, I would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving, whether it is a holiday you celebrate or not.
