Superman never made any money for saving the world from Solomon Grundy

Thanks

There's a lot wrong with the mythology of Thanksgiving, which arose from a particularly distorted view of our history, and we should recognize that.

There is a benefit, separate from any specific stories, to taking a moment to be grateful for all that we have.

Valuing the people that we know, the comforts that we enjoy, and even the things that we have will hopefully encourage us to realize what is truly valuable.

Taking time from our labors to come together and celebrate and share is good, and let us also be mindful of those who have been less fortunate than we have.

So, on this day I am humbly thankful for the material privilege I enjoy, the friends that I have found, and the love that I have shared.

And just so this doesn't become a too much of a sunrise sermonette, I am also grateful to live in a world where Wonder Woman rides a giant kangaroo.


Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
