Ingredients for a Heartfelt Thanksgiving: From the Kids at Boys Town by Val J. Peter

The boys and girls who come to live at Boys Town know too much about physical and emotional pain. The Thanksgiving holiday is an opportunity for them to learn the healing power of gratitude. "Life has failed so many of our kids, not at the end, not at the middle, but at the very beginning. And yet, there are many gifts and blessings," writes Boys Town Executive Director Val J. Peter as he describes in these pages how they and we can approach each day with a thankful attitude. Also inside, Boys Town children express what they are grateful for, ponder how the beauty of the fall inspires them, and come up with imaginative ways to cook a turkey. Their words can help you rediscover the spirit of Thanksgiving in your daily life.
