Perspectives on Thankfulness

"Connor, are you excited about Thanksgiving? You get to go visit your mom and Nana."

"Yeah, I guess so. I just wish they would serve fried chicken instead of turkey. I can throw down on some fried chicken. And what is Thanksgiving for anyway?"

"Well, it is a celebration to remind us of how the Pilgrims came over to this country and survived a very tough winter and how they worked hard and had a good harvest the next season. They had a huge feast and invited the Indians who had helped them out during the hard times. Then they all gave thanks for everything they had."

"So everybody was thankful?"

"Yes. They were all giving thanks."

"So how thankful were the Indians when the Pilgrims turned around and kicked them off of their own land?"
