I have mixed feelings about Thanksgiving. The fourth Thursday in November is the holiday closest to my heart because I deeply believe in being thankful. On the other hand, celebrating an event which led to the eventual genocide of most Native American societies is distasteful. I choose to celebrate Giving Thanks rather than Thanksgiving.
- I am thankful that the Occupy Wall Street Movement has changed the national conversation.
- I am thankful for family and friends who lovingly challenge me.
- I am thankful for Jon Stewart for being Jon Stewart.
- I am thankful for Iron Knee for trusting me with his cherished website and I am especially thankful that he will return to the helm of Political Irony in just a few more weeks!
What are you thankful for?
