Let Freedom Ring...


It is Thanksgiving Day and I am unable to count my blessings......I am truly fortunate that they are many. And I am grateful for all of them. But there is one that stands out, one that means a great deal to me...
FREEDOM.
It is freedom that allows me to have most of my other blessings. It is freedom that brought my grandparents to this country and gave them the opportunity to build and live their lives the way that they wanted. It is freedom that greets me every morning and escorts me through the day.
I am an American. I can choose. I can speak out without fear. And I can hold my head high and be proud of my country...a country that aids anyone in need anywhere in the world, usually on short notice; a country that isn't afraid to stand alone because it is the right thing to do; a country that makes the hard choices that no one else will make.
God Bless America & God Bless Our Troops
