thanksgiving
    #1051729 - 11/14/02 08:13 AM (14 years, 28 days ago)

I used to think that we were just thanking "god" for all "he" blessed us with. At least that is what my family led me to believe in my younger days. (crazy southern baptists) Anyways.. I bet the Indians, who were cheated out of and evicted from their homes, killed off by the thousands, and forced onto little plots of land... probably feel the holiday celebrates something a little different. What are your thoughts on this?

On Thanksgiving, I don't sit around and think about the history of the holiday. I gather with my family and give thanks to God for the opportunity. If you don't like the history abstain if you wish. Or you could take advantage of the opportunity to give thanks in your own way. It's up to you.

The real Independence Day didn't happen on the fourth of July. No need to fuss about it.

I agree.

We live on the most violent country on Earth. Let us give thanks....  :confused:

You live in the Philippines?  :confused:  I don't think that many of us here live in the Philippines.

The USA is not the most violent country on earth. Me thinks you watch too much American made news media.

Hey, that IS something to be thankful for!

Well then, I think you must be some fool who makes opinion based on concepts pulled straight out of your ass. Where'd you get the notion that the USA is the most violent country on earth? Oh, everyone "just knows" right? Wrong.

This thread was started in regard to Thanksgiving. I couldn't care less if you decide to celebrate the holiday itself. But citing fiction as a reason to cry and be thankless is pretty weak.

It's all good. I just want to say that I think these boards are a place for ideas to meet. When they clash lets try not to take anything too personal. Nomatter how nasty you or I sound to one another over the discussion of ideas on these boards, I'd welcome you in my house.

i'd echo those sentiments, as long as you handle the fact that "my home" doesn't have a TV  :grin:
