Over the past few months, tragedies after tragedies have been occurring. One-by-one, more people are slowing fading away. This world is in dire need of help. Enough is enough.
In just a few days, America will come together to show our gratefulness for the ones who surround us. Thanksgiving is a time when families, friends, and even strangers feast on turkey, enjoy each others presence and most importantly make memories. Memories that will last a lifetime.
It breaks many hearts to know that this Thanksgiving, members of there family, friends, etc. may not be present anymore. Memories won't be able to be made with certain people. Families will be broken. And being grateful will be very hard to obtain at all.
With sadness and many cries, try to take this holiday to appreciate the ones around you. Love, care, support and most importantly, never give up on the ones that want to make a change. Join in on conversations that are touchy to discuss. Be open-minded. Have an open ear. Don't take people for granted because you'll never know when they could be gone.
Thanksgiving is a reason to make memories. Memories for change and to never forget.
It is time to come together and discuss what the next step is. Take advantage of this holiday to make a difference and keep the memory of the ones lost living forever but also fight for what you believe is right.
America is our country. We are the ones that can make that change for the better. Thanksgiving is about being grateful. Grateful to be an America, to have rights and to be heard. Let your voice be heard. Whether it is at the Thanksgiving dinner table or on public television. Never hide, always speak.
