What are you thankful for?

Shiann Parsons, Student writer

 

During the holidays, I think the most important thing is to be thankful. It is nice getting presents and all of that fun stuff, but being thankful for the things that you have and appreciating your family and friends is the most important thing to remember around the holidays.

I went around GNA and asked some of the students what they are thankful for and why. Here are some of their responses:
