A traditional Thanksgiving is usually filled with family, food, fun, and football. A lot of traditions were scrapped this year as they were seen to be too dangerous. People were not able to socialize or travel due to the Pandemic. Technology helps a little bit to communicate with others, but it does not replace being in the same room with your family. It remains to be seen if more people will get together for the upcoming Christmas and New Year holidays. All of our lives have changed, and that is especially true for students. Uncertainty is an unwelcome part of life, and we will get through these turbulent times. It is more important than ever to count our blessings, pray, and to stay strong.
“You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” (A.A. Milne Christopher Robin “Winnie the Pooh”)
2021 is right around the corner!
I wish you all a Happy, Healthy, and Safe New Year!
