My grandson is six. He’s a sweet, skinny little boy with big brown eyes and a lisp. Yesterday, as I pulled out the bowls to start working on a cake, he asked in a low voice if we would still have Thanksgiving since Trump was elected. I said yes, we would.
I know that this election has been tough, and that many people are deeply uneasy about what 2017 could bring. I’m one of them. But today, I remind myself that I’m thankful – deeply thankful – to have you by my side, to keep fighting for a country and a world where all of us and all our children and grandchildren have a fighting chance to succeed.
Your stories, your hopes and wishes are with me today and every day. Thanks for being a part of this, and I hope you and your loved ones have a very happy Thanksgiving!
