WIS GM: Remembering the true meaning of Thanksgiving

Posted: Updated:

The following Perspective is an expression of opinion by the Editorial Board at WIS, and presented by General Manager Donita Todd.

As we celebrate our nation's holiday of Thanksgiving, I urge you to reflect on what that holiday should really represent.  A day of "thanks" – giving.  It's really my favorite holiday because it brings families and friends together for the sole reason of being together.  No gift giving, no religious significance, just a day of gathering and being thankful for what we have. 

You might also want to take time to thank someone who did something special for you in your life: paid for your education, helped launch your career, loaned you money, believed in you when you didn't believe in yourself or maybe saved your life.  That's what Thanksgiving day should represent -- a day of giving thanks.

However you celebrate, take pause to reflect on and express your gratitude.  Before Black Friday and CyberMonday come crashing in on us.

That's my Perspective.  Have a great holiday!
