Enjoy your Thanksgiving

If you're making your minimum wage employees show up for work at 1 or 2 am so you can open in the middle of the night for a few extra bucks, thus forcing them to sleep during the day and miss a holiday at home with family, you should be ashamed. (looking at you, Children's Place) 
If you are one of those people choosing to line up and storm the store so you can save $5, you're culpable as well. 
This is the one holiday that truly celebrates our own humility and the act of being thankful for simply being here; for the people who make our lives complete.  
Can we enjoy it before we jump headlong into the cynical consumerism that marks Christmas in America and the annual ritual of spending more than we have?
Stay at home, enjoy your family, be thankful for the blessings you have - the kind that you can't purchase.
