Shortly before Thanksgiving, The New York Times asked readers to submit in six words or less what they are grateful for in 2020. More than ten thousand people responded, and the paper devoted a full page of the Thanksgiving Day paper to printing about a hundred of them.
Some of my favorites: “Saved a lot of lipstick money.” “I am bored, but not dead.” “Healthcare workers, healthcare workers, healthcare workers.” “Out of prison with great job.” “Postponed wedding, having baby instead.” “Zoom Thanksgiving beats ICU Christmas.”
I thought for a long time about the six words that expressed what I was most grateful for in 2020. I came up with “Peter” “Seth” “Jeremy” “Katrina” “Leo” “Grady”.
