Thanksgiving Thoughts

Today is Thanksgiving Day in the US. For those who are not familiar with American holidays and traditions, Thanksgiving is a really tribute to cooperation and camaraderie. There are many theories and folklore surrounding the concept; but I think one trumps over the rest. More than four scores ago when the pilgrims from England set foot in North America and decided to call it their home, they didn't encounter a Welcome to America sign at JFK airport. Harsh New England weather was just one of the many sobering reminders of the fate of things to come for the visitors. The pilgrims didn't have a Walmart and a credit card to swipe for potatoes and cereal; they had to grow their own food. Well, they did that in their own country; but they had no idea how to do that in this strange land.
