Happy Thanksgiving!

For the record, Thanksgiving as a Nationally observed holiday is a ridiculous retelling of an awful truth about United States history.

Indigenous People were exterminated in a genocide that included mass hangings, relocations, and the destruction of a culture.

It’s important that we acknowledge this fact.  It’s unfortunate that most of us are so relieved to have a day off of work that we shrug off any guilt we might have about the reason we’re celebrating.

Either way, I have the day off and I was reminded how few and far between real appreciation can be- so I sent my family and friends some Happy Thanksgiving videos to let them know I’m thinking of them. It made me happy to make silly short videos and I like to imagine what they’ll say. I am Thankful for so much in my life. . .

Happy Thanksgiving to you-
