November Reflections: On Gratitude
Like so much else in 2020, Thanksgiving isn’t going to look like it usually does. With public health officials urging Americans to stay home and avoid gatherings, my partner and I will be spending the holiday in our apartment, eating turkey for two. When so much has been taken from us already, it’s frustrating to face yet another difficult tradeoff between carefree celebration and the safety of our loved ones and communities. At the same time, heading into this national holiday of gratitude, I have to say I also feel more grateful than ever.
