Little Thanksgiving meditation

 How do you celebrate Thanksgiving? Are you thankful for all of the blessings you have received? But if your well-being and good fortune are created by other people’s misfortunes; if your happiness is built on indifference, if to have more and more you have to deny others the right to have something, no matter how small, and you justify it by saying: “that’s how life is”, and if you also believe that you’re always entitled to more than your fellow humans and the bread on your table is blessed by your silence and peaceful indifference in front of a society that turns its back to the poor and the unlucky, if the center of your world is just you, your immediate relatives and nothing else, then who are you really thanking on this day? And who should you be thanking instead?
