It’s Good To Give Thanks
November 25th, 2010
After a seemingly endless year of waiting, American Thanksgiving is back and is poised to be bigger and — if we all do our part — better than ever. The President has chimed in as he’s wont to do, pardoning a set of Turkeys today at 1600 Pennsylvania. But outside of the love of fowl, food, family, friends, and good fortune that comes with Thanksgiving and Christmas (post pending), it’s been a week of good news that we can all give a big gracias to: The Pope endorsed condoms, the University of California came a lot closer to completing an artificial kidney that looks a whole lot like a car battery, AIDS was quasi-cured for people with names other than Magic, flamenco dancing and lunch in France were deemed cultural treasures, superheroes were deemed worthy of the right to free speech, and a car was driven from Alaska to Argentina without any emissions.
Sure, it would be easy to point to equally bad developments, but that’s not really our gig. Good things happen, goes the mantra. That’s why we’re here.
Have a stellar Thanksgiving. You may not love the TSA, but thank them for their exploratory gestures — you never know when you’ll make a friend traveling home for the holiday weekend. Whatever you do and whomever you’re with, try and remember what matters most.
Happy Thanksgiving from Goodosphere. Thanks for keeping us company.
And thanks to Katie O and the good pilgrims at Greenbrier Learning Center for the photos.
