Listen to this 'Talk of the Nation' topic

Families around the country are sitting down to dinner. But at many tables, there are people missing. Maybe a son's train or a daughter's flight is delayed... Or a close friend has to work... Or a relative decided she didn't want to make a long trek home... Or a father or mother is overseas. I won't attempt to top Sarah's post, "A Traditional Turkey Day," about her family and Thanksgiving. It's a good read. In the first hour of today's show, we want to hear who won't be at your Thanksgiving dinner this year. Where will they be instead? What are you doing to remember them?
