America’s Table: A Thanksgiving Reader

HOUSTON – Every Thanksgiving, we gather with our family, friends and loved ones to reflect upon the year and express our gratitude for the year’s blessings. This year has been a year like no other.

Amid a global pandemic, a contentious presidential election and demonstrations demanding social justice, we return to the table grateful — for the gift of life, for the blessing of each other, and for the democracy and freedoms our nation bestows on its citizens, even as we work to perfect those freedoms.

During our America’s Table program, we share immigrant stories that inspire, celebrate our cultural roots and hopefully, entice you to cut each other some slack. We will share motivational stories and enjoy performances from local artists as we celebrate our uniqueness and what makes us the same.

America’s Table will be presented by KPRC 2′s Kris Gutierrez and former KPRC 2 anchor Linda Lorelle.
