happy thanksgiving

happy thanksgiving, everyone! it reminds us how there's enough for everyone when we share, when we aren't greedy and selfish and think the world owes us something.

apparently there are those who would tell me how i should feel, that this day should remind me of the attempted destruction of everything i love and believe in. they want me to be angry, and to pick their side, and fight somebody else's war. but there's no sense in that. not on thanksgiving. that's not what it's about, that's not what it was ever about, and if they would stop listening to the bullshit being programmed into their heads, and start listening to the spirits of their own ancestors, which is in their blood, they would know truth from lies, and there would be no reason for war.

thanks giving means you give thanks. this is how i pray. i don't ask the gods for favors, i thank them for the blessings i have received (even the ones that sometimes look more like a curse). it is important to me to do this, not just one day a year, but every day. but this one day a year i do get to share this practice with you all who might pray different than i do. thank you, all y'all.  ♥

they steal thanksgiving from the eastern woodland tribes, then they tell us we aren't allowed to celebrate it with them. we're supposed to be angry and upset about it instead. *sigh*
