I have begun to see this time of year in a new way. I grew up with cute pictures of turkeys and "settlers" stuck up on the classroom walls when I was a child. I didn't know any better than that. Now, I reflect on the great loss endured by the indigenous people who inhabited this continent hundreds of years ago, misnamed after a different continent (that being India). I am embarrassed that It has taken all this time for me to finally start to ask, what can I do to even begin to right this wrong? There are likely many options. My challenge is to find a balance between what might be needed and my capacity to contribute. A balance between maintaining a day for expressions of gratitude for abundance, and a day (or a month) to atone for what was done.
