Happy Thanksgiving 2016
While we've made some amazing progress this year, the adverse results of the 2016 presidential election will put much of that progress at rsk starting on January 20 with an incoming (yuck) Republican administration
But today, not going to focus on that looming political drama, will have time to do that later. I'm going to just focus on counting my blessings.
I have been blessed with multiple awards and making history in getting one of them. I have in 2016 stood inside the White House (for the fifth time), on the campus of Harvard University, outside of the site of San Francisco's Compton's Cafeteria, and on the historic Chautauqua Institution amphitheater stage with Janet Mock.
The blessing I want for our community here in the United States and around the world is to have our humanity and human rights recognized, respected and protected .
And oh yeah, did I mention the amazing people in my life that I call my friends?
Happy Thanksgiving people! May your holiday meal be tasty, the people you share it with be full of grace and good cheer, and you have safe travels to and from your holiday destinations.
