“In my area, there's been retailers that have been open on Thanksgiving for years. This is nothing new. I don't know why the o u tr age is. It may not be ideal for those working, but I'm sure you'll appreciate it when you realize you forgot the StoveTop for the dinner.
There are also many, many others who work on holidays -- people that work behind the scenes in TV and radio, medical professionals, public safety officers, etc. Again, not ideal, but why get so upset about it NOW?”

“We are all members of a family and everyone's needs and interests are important. That being said, my husband and I jointly place our children first.
You don't find friends valuable? I find they give me so much joy and I learn a great deal from them.”

“I would never put anyone above my kids. Hubby puts me above the kids and it really bothers me only because I wouldn't want him to put any potential future wife (if I die early) above my kids (when they are minors).”
