You are welcome, of course. I hope you know that originally, in 1863, Thanksgiving didn’t have fuck all to do with Indians or Pilgrims. Lincoln proclaimed it in the midst of our most brutal war (53,000 casualties in three days at Gettysburg) to give thanks for the victory of union over discord, a union as much in danger now as it was then. People should know, remember, and reflect on that.
