This, a holiday everyone can enjoy, because it has nothing to do with religion or, if you really think about it, nationality. The whole holiday is to celebrate the kindness and compassion of one people who helped another in a time of great need to share in a wonderful feast. To me that is a celebration of humanity that should be enjoyed by the world as a whole regardless of what pile of dirt it took place on. In my eyes, this is a human holiday, not an American holiday. So, even though I will not be able to partake of any festivities due to having to work, I invite all my fellow human beings to join me in in honoring the spirit of kindness and compassion of those people who , so long ago, reached out and helped their neighbors. Give an extra smile today, give a hand to some one who needs assistance, and share what warmth may lay in your heart to show that the human spirit is truly a warm and caring one. Happy Thanks giving to all, the world over.
