Hope and Gratitude in Time of Thanksgiving from Scion Analytics


Thanksgiving is a holiday inspired by one of the most potent emotions – gratitude. To be present in all things and thankful for all things is an iridescent gift bestowed by life, a fragile wonder woven with complexity and contrast.

Gratitude In 2020

2020 has been a year that amplified the need for gratitude in our lives and hearts. An unprecedented time in history that halted the world with fear for safety and exposed the vulnerability of collective humanity. When the history books reflect on 2020, the historians will surely write about the darkness and the losses, the rhythm of existence interrupted.

In the face of a grim present, we unite and overcome with hope, service, and compassion. We look to a better tomorrow with our families, friends, and communities healed by hope stronger than fear.
