This week’s Unscripted Weekly is all about Thanksgiving! For many Americans, it is time to come together with family and friends to pause and appreciate. It’s no secret that for many Americans this has been a difficult political year, and continues to be a source of upset, so I have included a few articles with conversation topics and tips.
At the end of the day, we are all humans. Breathe, relax, and enjoy the gifts of family, friends, and home.
“Try not to confuse the importance of the topic you’re discussing with the importance of the conversation you’re having.” ~Daniel Post Senning
