Let us remember the true meaning of Thanksgiving.
More and more retailers are announcing that they will open earlier for Black Friday shopping. This is unfair to the workers. They should be allowed to enjoy Thanksgiving with family and friends without worrying about going to work on Thanksgiving or early the next day.
I'm sure the Pilgrims didn't have a Black Friday shop-till-you-drop. They were just thankful to be alive.
Let us remember to give thanks for family, friends and that we live in a democracy.

Thanksgiving is this week. It's time to reflect on all we have and count our blessings. There is much for us to be thankful for: family, friends, neighbors and much good cheer.
It's also a time for us to think of the less fortunate -- homeless, elderly and poor New Yorkers who have lost so much in their lives. Let's give through our local food kitchens, community organizations and houses of worship that distribute to those in need.
