Good news. When you sit down at the Thanksgiving dinner table next week, with a spread of oven-baked turkey, fluffy white mashed potatoes, and steaming gravy, your wallet will be a little less empty.
Out of 365 days a year spent sleeping on the streets, Thanksgiving must be one of the best—a full stomach, real conversation with other people, and celebrities and politicians providing the royal treatment. But after the trays of turkey and bowls of mashed potatoes are empty, after all the volunteers return to their families to celebrate a “real” Thanksgiving meal, the magic of Thanksgiving comes to an end. Tomorrow has come.
The smell of turkey lingers in the house from morning to evening. The plate settings are positioned and the television channel is set for the first football game. America’s annual day of thanks has started.
Editorial pieces and blogs spew their traditional message concerning homelessness in America. “One day is not enough!” they write. Feeding and helping homeless Americans should be year round. Who can argue with that?
