This Thursday it is easy to know what I’m thankful for.
I’m thankful for living in a country where our children are safe to go to school. People are safe to go to the movies. Runners are safe to run in marathons.
I’m thankful for a country who not only accepts tighter gun laws, but wants them. Because we have seen what happens without them.
I’m thankful for living in a country where I can ride any bus I want to and I’m not going to be gang raped, beaten and left on the side of the road to die.
I’m thankful for living in a country where clean running water is readily available.
I know our country is not perfect. I know bad things happen here, too. But I think we have a helluva better chance here, than many other countries, of being able to live a safe and healthy life. Today I’m thankful for that.
What are you thankful for?
