In 1621 native Americans & “pilgrims” from England, seeking religious freedom, shared a meal together that began Thanksgiving. With Chicken, rice/dhal, apples, and breads, a first Thanksgiving was experienced in 2016 with new Americans. As the story was told about the history of Thanksgiving, it was a great evening. These modern-day “pilgrims” are seeking peace, religious freedom, and a new life. They come from Iraq, Afghanistan, Congo, Rwanda. It was a beautiful meal and a little English lesson on asking each other what we are grateful for!
