"America is another name for opportunity. Our whole history appears like a last effort of divine providence on behalf of the human race." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
With election day tomorrow I thought it would be appropriate to express my gratitude for this great country in which we live. I am grateful for the determination, intelligence, and fortitude shown by our founding fathers when they established this nation. I am grateful for the freedoms that I enjoy each day, especially at this time of year when I can voice my opinion politically without the fear of losing my life or my family. I am grateful for the freedom to worship and participate in whatever endeavors I feel will enrich myself and my family. I know our government has strayed from the original outline of the constitution, and right now could use a good cleansing, but as for the basic freedoms I enjoy each day of my life, for that I am grateful.
God bless America.
