Today’s post comes via blogger Seth Godin, a master of efficient, effective business-thinking geared toward honesty, progressive thought, and meaningful community. He offers The Thanksgiving Reader. Here’s his wonderful message:
“I’m hoping that this year, you and your family will help us start a new holiday tradition. The idea is simple: At your Thanksgiving celebration (and yes, it’s okay to use it outside the US), consider going around the table and having each person read a section aloud. Before the meal starts, all you need to do is put one page on each person’s chair and follow the simple steps. During the ten or fifteen minutes your family spends reading together, millions of people will all be reading the same words, thinking about the same issues, connecting with each other over the essence of what we celebrate. After all the travel and the cooking and the hassle, for these few minutes, perhaps we can all breathe the same air and think hard about what we’re thankful for.”
