Time for Thanks

All Americans know that Thanksgiving is a day to give thanks, but just what should we be thankful for. First, we need to be thankful that we have the freedom of religion in our country. We are free to worship where, when and how we want. Many countries do not have this same freedom.

Secondly, we need to be thankful that we live in a country that is ran as a democracy. We may not always agree with the way that it is being ran, but we also need to remember that as voters we put the lawmakers into place. We should be thankful in the fact that we know that our leadership can change within a few years.

We need to be thankful for the education system that we have in our country. It may not be the best and many may see many problems with it, but we should still be thankful that we have one. Our education is an important step in our lives. We are free to continue our education above what the public standard is if we feel the need to.

We should be thankful for the friends and families that we have near and dear to us. I have many friends, but few that are really a part of me and my family. Those are the friends that we seem to never leave no matter how long we are apart. I have a few of those friends and a couple that I consider closer to me than my family.

Whatever it is that you are thankful for, be sure to give that Thanks to God on this special day. Also, consider telling someone thanks for all that they do for you.
