Civic Value: It's all About Gratitude

 

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

 

Deep divisions separate, challenge us, and test our resolve. Gratitude may not necessarily be the first thing we think of if we experience these differences in our families. But we have choices. We  can allow our differences to sew conflict and resentment 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!
