“It’s hard to say when or how it started, but a few years ago my husband and I quit celebrating Thanksgiving,” writes @LATBermudez  https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2019-11-27/thanksgiving-history-el-salvador-armenia-family 

“At first, forgoing the feast came easy. Then we had our first child. With her presence came this pressure, a responsibility to teach her all the truths about the founding of this country that as kids we were never taught.”  https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2019-11-27/thanksgiving-history-el-salvador-armenia-family 

“But the truth was, we still had no clue how to start. And if we couldn’t begin telling our children this nation’s story, how could we ever speak to them about our personal histories?”  https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2019-11-27/thanksgiving-history-el-salvador-armenia-family 

.@LATBermudez writes about the books and memories she worked through with her daughter while deciding how to honor people’s histories.  https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2019-11-27/thanksgiving-history-el-salvador-armenia-family
