Thank goodness it’s Thanksgiving. We all need a break. Anytime we head home for a holiday, we're always reminded of the blog post Councilman Kevin Roden posted in 2013 dubbed Banning Politics from the Thanksgiving Table. How did we get to this place where a discussion of ideas on the direction of our country and community could be so poisonous? For a lot of us who hear "we're not going to discuss politics," our family isn't necessarily in our same bubble. To not spend that time in civil discourse with folks of differing viewpoints over good food and drink would be a shame. Turkey sucks, though. Hashtag your good photos #WDDI and tell us what your thankful for.
