guilt at Thanksgiving

I suspect some people feel guilt at Thanksgiving that they have so much more than other people. But guilt doesn’t lead to responsibility. Americans are completely okay with feeling guilty. We’re conditioned to assuaging it all the time. What our bounty at Thanksgiving should do is cause us to practice gratitude with service. Volunteering is wonderful. Better still is forming and maintaining new friendships with people we’re most likely to ignore or run from.
