A Thanksgiving Invitation

George’s Senate Coney Island Restaurant in Northville, Michigan is run by a Greek immigrant who just goes by George. For years, he’s been offering free Thanksgiving dinner at the restaurant for lonely singles and homeless people. He knows what that’s like.  

George came to the United States at the age of 23 after growing up in Greece. He lived on a farm with seven brothers and sisters, and his parents couldn't afford to send him to school. He left home at the age of 12 and went to Athens, where he was homeless for a time,and depended on the kindness of others to give him food.

George knows how to pay it forward. -via Uproxx

A friend had an "Orphans Thanksgiving" one year. She invited all of her friends who were not going home. She thought there as going to be six of us. I made the turkey. One of her (so-called) friends took it upon herself to invite 20 other friends and called it a Vegan Thanksgiving.

After the initial shock at the secondary host's rudeness, we (the meat eaters) realized that the vegan guests had no idea what happened. Everyone coexisted, us with the win by eating their wonderful vegetable dishes as well as our traditional fare.
