When we read the news headlines and see in social media, the images of unrest, mayhem, and despair, it is easy to forget where it is that we really live and what that really means.
Thanksgiving as we celebrate it, is an American holiday. America, warts and all, is worth being thankful for.
There is one place, one shining place on earth where any individual can begin with absolutely nothing, yet go on to become, do, and achieve anything he or she wishes, through a combination of education, determination, and hard work. That place is the United States of America.
As long as we protect the freedoms, principles, and moral foundation upon which the founders built this nation, America will remain as a blazing beacon of hope for the rest of the world.
I am thankful for being blessed to live in America.
