Thank you. This was my first and, yes, my only Happy Thanksgiving wish I have ever received from a Native American.

You and my oldest sister share similar musical taste! I did not inherit patience (odd transition) but when’s the next novel comes out?😀

Perfect choice! Now that more and more Americans know the truth of our first Thanksgiving story we can get on to making it a day for gratitude.

Sherman, you’re a gift every day of the year! And yes, it’s a first for me ... thank you for that happy Thanksgiving greeting! 😂 I for one appreciate your tolerance for the interlopers, some of us don’t appreciate what a glorious country this is. Let us all hope for a better tomorrow. ❤️

In spite of everything, there is so much to be grateful for that we should be more aware of.

Yeah, hey I am grateful my ancestors didn't murder your ancestors and we could meet up here in cyberspace. I can't be sure my ancestors didn't try but you are here so I know they didn't get yours or at least they didn't wipe out your entire blood line. Think of all the poetry that might not exist now. Free Palestine. Happy Thanksgiving everybody.

Back at ya, from a few generations of a family of NAs (and happy Packer fans) gathering from all over, California to Virginia, in ABQ today.

I want you to know that today and every day; I am grateful for you. I am grateful for minds joined in peace and compassion for all human beings. ‘Thanksgiving’ should be every day. But as a dedicated day to remind people of the goodness they have around them - ‘Thanksgiving’ could be ‘celebrated’ any day of the year. Thank you for all you do to open minds and hearts. Thank you for this community. As Earth Wind & Fire would say 😉 ‘Nothing but love is going to make a way!’
