At the Damon City Campus Learning Commons we conducted a short survey among our students to see what Thanksgiving Holiday means to them.
Their answers reveal that Thanksgiving still holds a very special and honored place in the culture of our nation and our hearts.
Students most common answers:
…. Thankful for life, health, happiness, freedom, hard work, family, job, coworkers,
education, friends, children, fiance, boyfriend, opportunities, strength, wisdom,
mentors, and role models
Some students were more specific:
….Thankful to God for roof above my head, food on my table
….Thankful for life, mistake I made and joy I have
….Thankful for being a cancer survivor
….Thankful that God has given me another shot of life
….Thankful that I didn’t have to bury anyone
….Thankful to wake up and being able to breathe and see
….Thankful for what I have to share with those who don’t have anything
For the end of the list we saved one, very short but most explicit and profoundly touching:
“THANKFUL FOR MORNINGS” -- Think about it!
Students’ answers are now on display in the atrium, next to the entrance to the Damon Learning Commons.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL!
