"Never let the things you WANT make you forget the things you HAVE"
Some of us play Second Life as a way of escaping our real life, some play as a hobby or way to waste time, others may play because that is the only way of socializing with other people because real life has restricted them in some way or another. What are you thankful for in Second Life? What has it given you that you?
Kasslina Moonglow: The friends I have made.
Savannah Darling: Friends and family mostly. SL friends and family are there for you in times when nobody else is. Personally, friends and fam here have been more supportive and understanding than RL ones. SL would be nothing without them ya know?

For Americans, Thanksgiving is coming up, a time when we are to remember the things we have in our lives that we appreciate. It is easy to get wrapped in the every day happenings and chores of life, but even little things that we've grown used to seeing as a norm should be remembered. There is never any telling who isn't lucky enough to have those things we do or when we could lose them. Enjoy Life, Enjoy Second Life and never waste a moment, because if it isn't what you want then why do it?
