Re "Something to be thankful for," Nov. 20

With the holidays here, I am reminded of the way we once celebrated them. Stores were actually closed, and there wasn't a Black Friday, nor were there endless lines of people who had waited for days to buy things.

People actually slowed down and took a day off to do nothing. We were not attached to any devices that now have become indispensable.

I truly am grateful this holiday season for the memory of a time when the world stopped and took a real day off from all the madness and stress.

Somewhere along the way we lost our common sense.
