Aside from spending time with family and friends, for me, it's also a time of reflection and to be thankful for what I have not only as a family or individual but also as a nation.
Thanksgiving marks the beginning of the Holiday Season. While I am not a religious person, I do have values and morals and see the world as a wonderful, if not very unusual place to live in. People are so very interesting.
I feel that we should try to better ourselves and try to understand people that don't always agree with us without being vile or abusive. I feel we should give as much as we can to charity and help people up, not kick them when they are down. I believe that if you do the right thing, it will come back to you as it always has for me.
I consider myself lucky in life.
And for that, I am truly grateful.
