Today, like millions across America, I will celebrate Thanksgiving with family and friends, with generous helpings of food and football. However, this year comes with a pleasant twist as I’ll be celebrating in Ireland.

The United States may have just emerged from a noisy campaign season, but Thanksgiving reminds us that no matter our differences, we are part of something bigger than ourselves. The story of Thanksgiving offers an opportunity to express our gratitude for the gifts we have and our appreciation for all we hold dear.
