Phila. Inquirer publishes NLM Op-Ed on Gratitude

Each year on Thanksgiving, Americans are called upon to think about what they are grateful for. But what is gratitude and why is it important? These are questions explored every day through the exhibits and programs at the National Liberty Museum, and questions that CEO of the National Liberty Museum, Gwen Borowsky, explores through her Op-Ed featured in the Philadelphia Inquirer. Ms. Borowsky asks readers to think about the importance of gratitude on a societal level, explaining that while many people regard gratitude as the simple act of saying thank you, it’s actually a value, an indication of character, and part of the foundation our country was built upon. Gratitude, after all, is enshrined in this national holiday for good reason. Read on to learn more!
