JUNEAU- U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski wants to know what you're thankful for.

Murkowski is asking Alaskans who want to participate to use the hashtag #AKThanks when posting pictures, messages or videos on Facebook or Twitter.
Murkowski's office, in a release, says she's starting the social media campaign to kick-start a statewide conversation to "accentuate the positive."
Murkowski says it's sometimes easy to get caught up in the negative things. She sees the social media campaign as a way for Alaskans to remind themselves about all there is to celebrate in their lives.
The senator also plans to share things she's thankful for.
The campaign will lead to the premiere of a video called "Appreciating Alaska" that Murkowski is featured in on Tuesday.
