Yesterday the residents of the Criminal Justice Living Learning Community were given little hand turkeys withe their names on it. This simple little turkey is a symbol for the upcoming holiday. While we all may be busy chowing down on some much anticipated home cooking it is important to remember the reason for this holiday. Thankfulness. I personally am thankful for all the great residents I have had the chance to meet and interact with this year and for the opportunity to be their Resident Assistant. I am thankful for the fun and exciting events we have done and the memories we have all made this year. I hope that looking at the hand turkeys the residents will self-reflect on what they are thankful for this year as they come ever closer to finishing their first semester here at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville.
