It’s the week before Thanksgiving, and one of the things I’m most thankful for is that I was fortunate enough to be born in America. I’m grateful I didn’t grow up in a war zone, and that I live in a country where I have freedoms that are such a part of me that I don’t even think about them. I’m thankful I’m so blessed!
I don’t forget that my freedom was purchased by soldiers throughout the past 200+ years, and I’m thankful for that. I’m thankful that I’m not forced to follow a religion I don’t believe in, that I can keep a gun if I want, that I can speak the truths that are important to me.
I’m thankful for each sacrifice made to keep me free. I wish I could tell the men and women who paid dearly for this freedom of mine how grateful I am. Since I can’t, I’ll simply send up a small prayer that their lives and that of their loved ones will be blessed as my life has been blessed. I’m thankful for this feeling of gratitude.
