If you are following the news, it doesn’t look like there’s much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving: The deadly Israeli-Hamas war. Attacks and protests against the Jewish people. Housing and rental costs soaring. United States’ politics in disarray. And some experts are predicting another deadly round of COVID-19. Yep, all these things suck like a turkey baster!
