Because one day of Thanksgiving isn't enough (2 of 7)

Today, I give thanks for consciousness raising. I am thankful for the people who have the hard conversations to encourage others to become more expansive and careful and inclusive in their thinking and understanding of the world and people in it. I am thankful for the people who can have those conversations gently and compassionately, and I'm thankful, too, for the people who can't have them gently.

I'm thankful for the view of the world that allows for ongoing change and improvement, recognizing that we've come a long way, and also that we have a long way still to go. I'm thankful for people being vulnerable with their tender feelings and striving toward greater humanity for themselves and others.

I'm thankful for the pain of learning, and the relief of progress. I'm thankful for the opportunity to grow, and to teach, and for people to do these things together.
