A Thanksgiving Message from GOOD

Thanksgiving is one of the best holidays. There's the food, and the family, and the friends. And that is awesome. But there is also a grand serving of perspective that comes with thinking about what one is grateful for. And that is the most beautiful thing.

"There are no words to describe this feeling," Dina told the Jeruselum Post. "It is very emotional for us to be together again."
