As we become involved with the day to day challenges of life, we can lose sight of all we have to be grateful for in this country. We have the freedom to spend our days with family and friends without worry of intrusion. We have the freedom to pursue our dreams to the best of our abilities and enjoy the fruits of our labors. We have the freedom to stand on our soapboxes and express our beliefs without fear of persecution. We have the freedom to sit in the living room and watch football, eat far too much and not have to worry about those who would challenge our way of life because others wear a uniform and stand in harm’s way.
On this day let us give thanks for the wisdom of our founding fathers for creating a republic where freedoms never before enjoyed by any peoples have so long endured. Let us also thank those in uniform toady, and those who have worn it in the past, for the sacrifices they have made so we may enjoy this day in peace and freedom.
Happy Thanksgiving America!
