During this Thanksgiving season, let us reflect and give thanks for the blessings we have received. This is a time, more than ever; to appreciate the small things and cherish those we love most.
This year has been especially tough for the Charleston community, our nation and our world. From the Emanuel AME Church Massacre to the attacks in Paris, crime has been rampant. Yet, through these tragedies, we must not let these acts of violence dampen our spirit. We should grow from these experiences and work to make this world a better place for everyone.
On a personal note, I am thankful for my friends and family who have supported me along the way. I’m grateful for health and strength, even when some days are better than others. Nevertheless, my disability has allowed me to remain active and has empowered me to make the best out of every situation.
I hope you enjoy the turkey with all the fixin’s and even some sweet potato pie (weather it’s made by Patti LeBelle or not)!
Have a happy and safe Thanksgiving holiday!
