FERS Disability Retirement: Happy Thanksgiving 2020

2020 has been a tumultuous year.  From the COVID-19 Pandemic to the rancorous political season; from shutdowns, the constant misery of disease, death and debilitating after-effects of this virus to a government paralyzed by partisanship; from the political turmoil of the recent election to the incessant drumbeat of a democracy tested by its own words; throughout, there has been little pause to consider the basis for our thankfulness.

Yet, this is the time to take stock of the things we appreciate.  We can be rocked by the daily blast of news cycles, but when we sit down for Thanksgiving — whether alone or with our immediate family — are there not moments of joy in considering what we have, as opposed to what we have lost? Loss is a part of living; recognition of what we have retained, a slice of joy; and always, to be thankful for a future yet hopeful, and of little things to cherish. Stay safe; stay healthy.

Happy Thanksgiving.
