Speak Out: It’s Thanksgiving, What Are You Thankful For?
Hey, guys! We here at Adam4Adam would like to wish all of our users from the US a Happy Thanksgiving!
We are also taking this opportunity to remind everyone that 2 days ago, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) had sent a health advisory for US consumers against the consumption of romaine lettuce as it may have been contaminated with E. coli. The outbreak started in October and reportedly, there are 11 states affected so far: California, Connecticut, Illinois, Massachusetts, Maryland, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, and Wisconsin. Read about the outbreak in full here.
The CDC also advised the public to practice food safety for their Thanksgiving meals especially for raw turkey and raw chicken because of an ongoing salmonella outbreak. Read the details here as it also includes the story of recalled products due to possible salmonella contamination.
We are also sending love to Adam4Adam users and their respective families in California who were affected with the devastation caused by the wildfires. Indeed, it’s been quite a year and although it is hard to have a thankful heart during trying times, in the end this is what Thanksgiving Day is for: learning how to have a grateful heart. Because no matter how many times we fall down today, we can always rebuild our lives tomorrow; that we are never truly alone in times of hardships because there’s always a friend or a family to share our sorrows with. For A4A, Thanksgiving is a time to reflect and be thankful for everything like our jobs, our health, our loved ones, pets, talents, and for many other little things that bring joy in our daily lives.
What about you, our dear Adam4Adam user, what are you thankful for?
