Civic Value: It's all About Gratitude


Welcome to our original Freedom's Feast celebration created in response to 9/11. Twenty-two years later, we continue to face serious threats as a nation.


Deep divisions separate us and test our resolve. Gratitude may not be the first thing we think of if we experience these differences in our families. We  can allow our differences to drive us apart or we can see them as an opportunity to better understand one another.  This Thanksgiving celebrate the importance of family and our deep gratitude for the bonds that connect us. 

Please use the clickable resources below  to enrich your time together (whether in person or virtual). Who knows?  You may end up with some new family traditions!  Most of all, explore how gratitude can  help us to meet the many challenges ahead. 


Be kind. Be curious. Be civil. Be safe!
