I am taking off my journalist hat and posting this just as citizen of the world. I do not celebrate “thanksgiving” and rather recognize today as the National Day of Mourning for our indigenous people. However I do not judge anyone for their personal traditions. I just wish more empathy for us all.

I choose to celebrate Thanksgiving with a reminder that the story Pilgrims and Indians we’ve all been fed is a 19th C. historical revision and fiction meant to hide the true history and meaning of this day.
Like all lies, the myth of Pilgrims and Indians always felt flat.
