#TheMoment: What Are You Most Thankful For?

This month, Peers around the nation recognize all of the blessings that we may normally take for granted.

Between fighting over who gets the turkey leg, stuffing ourselves with Grandma’s prized stuffing recipe or gorging ourselves on world-famous pumpkin pie … there’s something special about this turkey holiday. We recognize all of the things we are thankful for and all of the blessings that we may normally take for granted.
