The core of this site is its community. Having conscientious discussion about a post-Peak Oil future with smart, supportive, and experienced minds from all over the planet is an incredibly valuable resource.
At Thanksgiving time on this site, we like to reflect on the good fortune we share: that Chris had the courage to share his Crash Course vision with the world, that this like-minded community has flourished around it, and that we still have the gift of time to make progress in our resiliency-building preparations.
So, let's make the most of the "virtual" Thanksgiving table we've created here at this site, and if you have a moment today, share a thought, story, or photo of what you're thankful for this season.
I, myself, have much to be thankful for -- including finally being fully situated in our new town, one much more sustainable from a Three E standpoint than our previous home in Silicon Valley. And as everyday, I am grateful for my great fortune to do important work with people of good intention (Chris, the PP.com staff, and all of you reading this). I love believing that each day, indivudually and collectively, we are all creating Chris' "world worth inheriting" through this site.
And remember that while most of us are celebrating today with family and other loved ones, some of us aren't (for reasons of illness, military service, isolation, etc). Sharing in this virtual community may be the most human interaction some of our community members will have today.
