Her husband Sushil is helping out the assembled chefs, and it’s about time for me to make the gravy.
“But I wanted to take a moment to say: Thank you.
“Thanksgiving is such a uniquely American holiday – a day of stories and lessons about people who journeyed to Massachusetts in search of freedom and opportunity. It is a day to celebrate the kindness and generosity of strangers, a day of gratitude for all the things that previous generations have sacrificed and given to us.
“And those values, those core American values, are more important than ever.
“My grandson is six. He’s a sweet, skinny little boy with big brown eyes and a lisp. Yesterday, as I pulled out the bowls to start working on a cake, he asked in a low voice if we would still have Thanksgiving since Trump was elected. I said yes, we would.
“I know that this election has been tough, and that many people are deeply uneasy about what 2017 could bring. I’m one of them. But today, I remind myself that I’m thankful – deeply thankful – to have you by my side, to keep fighting for a country and a world where all of us and all our children and grandchildren have a fighting chance to succeed.

“Thanks for being a part of this, and I hope you and your loved ones have a very happy Thanksgiving!”
