Take time during the holiday season to practice gratitude and remembrance with this roundup of poems from the Academy of American Academy of Poets celebrating community, kindness, home, and, of course, food. We’ve included a few excerpts from titles we hold at the library.
As the year recedes into the rear view mirror, the inclination is to look back and evaluate 2016. We tend to view the passing years with a critical eye, only seeing that which negatively impacted ourselves and those around us. And to some, it might feel like this year, more so than any other, was a particularly dreadful one.
My challenge to you, should you choose to accept it is…
What are you thankful for?
