Today I am going to attempt to temporarily suspend fixation on the past atrocities associated with this holiday, the massive injustices being committed against the original inhabitants of this land as I type these words, and the systemic inequalities and divisions that plague these United States of America.
I am going to spend quality time with my family, enjoy the fruits of the harvest, and acknowledge the multitude of blessings that have fallen into my lap.
Tomorrow I will avoid rabid consumerism that only serves to feed the Beast.
Be grateful for the little things that we all tend to take for granted. Seek contentment however fleeting. Spread unconditional love. Embrace humility.
