Halloween is over and Thanksgiving is around the corner! The Prevention Department here at Women’s Crisis Support- Defensa de Mujeres can’t prevent you from eating too much on this holiday (bring on the turkey!), but we CAN remind you of all the great things that are going on in your life. The bottom line about this holiday is not eating until our zippers explode (shocking, right?!), Thanksgiving is about giving thanks. With all the violence that goes on around us, in our community, in our schools, let’s be thankful that you are here reading this post. Because if you’re reading this, then it means you’re (most likely) alive. And no matter what we’ve all been through, let’s remember to breathe easy, because we’ve made it this far! There are many in our community who won’t be able to eat turkey on Thanksgiving, there are many that don’t have a place to call home. There is always someone less fortunate then us, and in this holiday of giving thanks, why don’t we thank our community for providing us with the resources and the people we need to get through tough situations? Give back to the community this season, and always remember to be thankful for what you have.
