I have an idea for this Thanksgiving.
Let's give thanks to the the United States that is us.
Did you ever notice how the initials for the country are also our name?
E pluribus unum, it's on every bill -- Out of many, one. That's us.
So let's thank the United States.
The generous, diverse, upward-reaching United States.
The one that figures stuff out, makes things right, gets shit done and sets a table at the feast for everyone, no matter what color their skin, including white.
Say thank you to everyone and everything.
Remember what President Kennedy said: "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country."
Let's break the mold this holiday season and set records for acceptance and gratuity.
Let's have a nice Thanksgiving!
