Default Thanksgiving (US)

On this day of giving thanks, on behalf of COTI's staff, I'd like to thank all those who serve their countries with honor, dignity, and at risk of self. We are thankful for your service, be it in public safety, the military, or other public services.

And, on behalf of Marc, I'd also like to thank the boards members for their contributions, both intellectual and financial, that keep the board running.

I'd also ask you to think of the things which, and people whom, you are graced with, no matter where you are. I'd encourage any who care to do so to share what they are thankful for. For the people you're thankful for, let them know.

For those outside the US: the history is that of a festival celebration shared between the local indigenous persons and the European settlers of what would become the US, giving thanks for good harvests and each other.
In the US, it's a federal holiday, and for many non-retail and non-public service jobs, a 4 day weekend.
