Happy Thanksgiving....let us Re-member.....

To acknowledge our ancestors
Means we are aware
That we did not make ourselves,
That the line stretches all the way back,
Perhaps to God; or to Gods. (goddess)
We remember them because
It is an easy thing to forget:
That we are not the first
To suffer, rebel, fight, love and die.
The grace with which we embrace life,
In spite of the pain, the sorrows,
Is always a measure of what has gone before.
Alice Walker
