Since this is the last Tulane Talk before the holiday, I want to take this opportunity to wish all you a Happy Thanksgiving. I think what we have to be grateful for this Thanksgiving can be summed up in one word: home.
Home is more than a place, of course. It is a spirit of community, of belonging, of deep-rooted bonds and history that, for all of us, have been strengthened by the incredible challenges of these past 15 months.
So as we gather with our family and friends this Thanksgiving let’s be mindful of our many neighbors who are still struggling to return home and be thankful for those who already have. Let’s also re-dedicate ourselves to doing whatever we can to help those who have not returned from their journey so that next year we can all give thanks together, at home.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving,
