As you read these three words, you may be doing so in the comfort of your home, which is beginning to be filled with not only family but also the aroma of Thursday’s feast bellowing through the atmosphere. Children are playing with siblings and cousins. Teenagers are merrily scrolling through apps on their phone and sending Snapchats to all of their friends. Thanksgiving Day represents a time of fullness, love, and special moments, but not for everyone.
