Thanksgiving Day – For Writers & Readers


Thanksgiving Day is my favorite holiday of the year. It is a day of peace, thankfulness, and feasting. No religion. No politics. Just a day that is wholesome, filled with family and friends. As we are upon the holiday season, before commercialism takes over, let us celebrate all of the goodness and abundance in our lives.  

I am thankful for…  

·         Easy and affordable access to buy or borrow books in the free land of America.

·         Attempts to ban books being exposed to the masses and met with the reaction of: “Well, now I will read those books.”

·         The millions of dollars that are raised to combat illiteracy.

·         Millions of books being donated each year to libraries, schools, and non-profits.

·         There being so many great books to choose from. 

·         Plenty of books being turned into big-screen movies, small-screen films, mini-series, TV shows, and theatrical plays.

·         The many good people who became English teachers and tutors. 

·         Plenty of volunteers who promote and teach literacy.

·         Authors who advocate for people and issues of concern. 

·         Hearing that people still read 1984, Crime and Punishment, The Assistant, and The Invisible Man.

·         Books that entertain us and make us laugh.

·         Books that enlighten us on truth.

·         Books that Inspire us to be our best selves.

·         Books that teach us skills, inform us of core facts, and educate us beyond the classroom.

·         Books that expose us to new ideas, unknown or forgotten histories, and a variety of possibilities.

·         Books that make us feel and allow us to experience lives beyond our own.

·         Books that promote peace, love, and democracy.

·         Books that make us question society and ourselves — and challenge the status quo.

·         Books that allow us to dream while awake.

·         Books that take us on a journey of the heart, soul, and mind.

·         Books that introduce us to the worlds imagined by others, and that spurs us to create new ones in our heads.

·         Bookstores, libraries, and wherever books are made available.  

May there be peace in the world, an end to the internal culture wars that rip us apart, and an increased amount of love in our hearts for strangers, enemies, friends, and family members. Amen.
