Thanksgiving: Why are we eating here? (with video)

We love soppy displays of gratitude. Soppy, in our book, means hopeful and authentic. So bring it on.

Here’s a Thanksgiving scene from the Blind Side. It’s plenty soppy, in all the right ways.

Before we cut to the video, we give thanks for our family and friends, for our colleagues here at the FCPA Blog, and for the work we’re privileged to be a part of every day.

Happy Thanksgiving.

  2. Great scene, although I may be biased, for I am a great fan of hers.
    Thank you for the wishes and for the video, Richard, and thank you and the FCPA Blog Team for one more year of great posts!

  3. Great spirit of Thanksgiving. If you are capable of Giving, the only way to be Thankful is by Giving. May we all be blessed with health, safety and happiness.
