A holiday fable with a COVID-era lesson.
A long time ago—no one remembers the exact year, but it was soon after the Second World War—residents of Sunset House (known then as The Old Ladies Home of Toledo) were anxiously anticipating the Thanksgiving holiday. It was a bittersweet time, to be sure. While thankful that the fighting abroad had ended, the country mourned its heroes who sacrificed everything for their country. Everyone looked forward to seeing family and friends—and counting their blessings with loved ones.
