About how quickly we forget

The bird we eat is of Mexican origin.

The pride we have for our American homeland is a result of Europeans fleeing from theirs, through globalization.

The English who landed here, instead of feasting with the natives first, actually double-crossed them during trade, and transported them, including the famed Squanto, back to Europe as slaves.

But how do we remember if we never knew in the first place?

Let’s face it. Sometimes we may not have all the facts.

The good news is we can always be grateful. For what we do have. In relationships, in freedom, in forgiveness, and choice.

Today. And every day.
