Thanksgiving: A Day of Mourning

In honor of Thanksgiving. I love that we have a holiday just to celebrate thankfulness. But the truth is the origins of this holiday are rooted in a glorified and whitewashed version of the early interactions between settlers and natives. And the ensuing genocide of the First Nations people is a shameful part of our history we’d like to forget. The bright side to this dark moon is that we can choose to remember and pay respect on this day each year to the peoples who were here first.
