Celebrating Diversity and Peace This Thanksgiving

“Thanksgiving, after all, is a word of action.” – W.J. Cameron

More than ever our students need to see meaningful examples of how the U.S. was built on various cultures coming together to collaborate, learn, and help each other. The Thanksgiving story reminds students how difficult it was for two cultures to respect each other, but eventually did. Before Thanksgiving, colonists and Native Americans were dying needlessly when they could’ve been helping each other through hardships like sickness, famine, etc. Lives are lost when we close our minds and think we don’t have anything to learn from people who are different from us. That is what the current political climate worldwide seems to believe, but our past has painfully taught us better. This Thanksgiving let’s help our future leaders learn the value of diversity and coming together despite differences to better the world.
