A side. A very diverse Thanksgiving!

24 Nov

Today we will have Thanksgiving, as we often do, at our friend Eva’s son’s house.  Eva is a Viennese Jew whose family fled the Nazis in 1939. Her son is married to a Laotian woman; their 12-year-old daughter speaks perfect Laotian, too.  Also there will be his daughter from a previous marriage to a Thai woman, and her fiance, an American black man who has lived all over the world.  The other guests include an Algerian-French  Jew and his Chinese wife, and Eva’s doctor, an American who ascribes to Indian spiritual practices and his Irish partner.  Wow!  There’s a lot to be thankful for!  All that diversity of belief and experience in one room!
