Thanks! In one photo

We can’t sit around a table with you this Thanksgiving (though we’d like to!), raising glasses of sparkling cider, holding hands and reflecting aloud, one after another, on what we’re thankful for this year.

So, we’re modifying this Thanksgiving tradition by asking people in our Public Insight Network to send us one photo — one photo of something or someone they are thankful for.  Here are snapshots of thanks from across the nation.

Click on the photos to read the stories behind them.  Then share your own photo.

(This slideshow requires Flash, which doesn’t work on some mobile devices.)

What are you thankful for this year?

Share your photo here, and we’ll add it to the slideshow.



Anna Weggel Analyst
Public Insight Network

Anna Weggel is a Public Insight Analyst, which means she spends her time crafting questions about upcoming story topics to send to sources in the Public Insight Network and then produces web, audio and video content featuring those sources.

Before finding her home at APM in 2008, Anna received her B.A. in journalism, was the editor in chief of The Minnesota Daily, and internship hopped through Mother Jones, The Chronicle of Higher Education, The Pioneer Press, the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal, and the Downtown Journal. Anna's non-work life is held hostage by the stage -- where she performs improv comedy and shows with her lady bluegrass band.

Melody Ng Analyst

As a Public Insight analyst, Melody Ng's job is all about finding out what people know, and then putting their experience and expertise to work making great news stories. She's particularly interested in getting diverse perspectives and voices into the news. So if you don’t hear people who think or sound like you in the news, then: Tell us what you know here. And come on into our newsroom!

Melody got into journalism through an internship with documentary unit American RadioWorks when looking for a different way to use the skills she had learned through doing science.
