Thankful #4

I am thankful that I live in America.

I have no photo for it, so you'll have to see it in my words.

I am thankful that God graciously allowed me to be born and raised in a country that values freedom. Freedom to worship however and whoever we want. Freedom to have an opinion and speak that opinion. Freedom to own property and prosper from hard work. Freedom.

Although I haven't been much of a world traveler, I have heard many who've traveled the world over report that we truly live in the greatest nation on Earth. Not because we're better people. But because we have the most chances at a good life. Because we have freedom.

And I'm thankful.
