It's Gratitude Day! What Are You Grateful For?

Gratitude Day

GREENSBORO, NC -- Between hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria, and the earthquake in Mexico, we've seen a lot of devastation in the past few weeks. It's easy to be sad about things happening in the world.

But today is a day to help people focus on the positive. It's World Gratitude Day. The day started in 1965 at the East-West Center in Hawaii by a man, who was the director of the United Nations Meditation Group. He suggested the idea as a globally unifying holiday and the members agreed. The group formally celebrated World Gratitude Day on September 21, 1977.

So we wanted to know what News 2 Viewers were thankful for and asked you to chime in on our Facebook page.

Julie Luck and Taheshah Moise shared what they're grateful for. Watch the video for their responses.
