Thanksgiving! An excuse for everyone in this country to over eat and brag about it. Makes me a little sicker every year. There are people all over the world dying because they can't eat and yet in this country we brag about over eating, spending too much on food and becoming too full to move.
I am once again sad to call myself an American when days like this are upon us.
Yes we should be thankful for everyone and everything great in our lives and I enjoy that aspect, but like Valentine's Day (where men are forced to be romantic via the calender), why must we wait until the last Thursday in November to be thankful? We should be thankful every single day.
We should help those in need and instead of pigging out on this day, the day we raped and killed the natives, kicked them off their own land, we should give back to those less fortunate.
Tisk tisk America...this is not what we are supposed to stand for.
