Fourth of July

Happy 4th of July, everyone! Thank God for a country where we are blessed with resources, freedoms of every sort, and the ability to express ourselves through the selection of our government.

I'm grateful that I can come from the cycle of poverty and go to college to make something of myself.

I'm grateful that I can go to church and not worry that I'll be persecuted for my choice.

I'm grateful that as a woman, I can walk down the street without it being considered a crime.

I'm grateful I am not considered a piece of chattel.

I'm grateful that men and women in the prime of their youth volunteer to represent me and my well-being in war.

I'm grateful that God chose to plant me in this country, with all of it flaws, because there is no better place on Earth to live.
