What Some People Are Doing For the Holidays

Act #285:  Check your privilege this holiday season. 

This past Friday, I received these two notices in my son’s backpack.  One was an invitation for a free Thanksgiving meal at school, the other for Christmas assistance.  Both programs were sponsored by the family resource center, and both were needs-based.  And just like that, my recent effort to upgrade our dining room table “in time for the holidays” seemed completely and utterly absurd.
