  1. I think we should all stop eating turkeys for thanksgiving. It conflicts with the message of love and harmony. “I am grateful for everything the Earth has given me. To prove it, I have killed a beautiful majestic bird, whose appearance with sharp features and bright hues are really attractive.”
    I think we should give turkeys something to be thankful for, by not eating them.
