Heartfelt Interlude: Gratitude in Action

by Jennifer Has Opinions

I can’t be all snark all the time.  I have my limits.  So, I hope you’ll forgive me for giving in to my more sincere impulses as we approach Thanksgiving.  If you’re like me, you’ll be spending the next several days in grocery stores and kitchens, preparing for the holiday meal.  While you are preparing, I would like for you to consider the families on the other side of the world affected by the drought in the Horn of Africa who are really and truly starving to death.  I won’t go on and on about it; I already did that here.  But I will ask you to do more than consider them.  I ask you to talk about them- to the point of obnoxiousness if that’s what it takes.  And I ask you to give to those who are helping them: UNICEF, ARC, UNHCR, and others.  Please.

Happy Thanksgiving.
