Happy Thanksgiving Day

By Billie Daddario

The aromas of the day Turkey and pumpkin pie.

We sit around the table giving thanks.

This year Is there more or less to be thankful for?

They are killing civilians in Ethiopia a war we have no time for.

COVID-19 is killing millions around the world, but not me and not my family.

In Pakistan one in five children won’t live to see there fifth birthday, but I don’t live in Pakistan.

Homelessness in the United States is at levels not seen since the great depression.

The environment is polluted and it’s past the point of no return the scientists tell us now.

The Government is broken, and can’t be fixed when not getting something done gets you reelected.

Is there more or less to be thankful for this Thanksgiving?
