Grateful to be an American

As promised, I’m sharing one thing that I am grateful for each week and with today being the 15th anniversary of 9/11 I thought that this would be an appropriate subject.

Although it was a beyond tragic event, it brought people together and proved that a community can work together to make a bad situation a little better. Our men and women in uniform sacrificed so much to keep the rest of us safe and that alone is something to be grateful for.

There are so many countries in which people are lacking in basic human rights. It’s a shame that we can’t get everyone on the same page but it’s all the more reason to make sure that you don’t take your freedom for granted.

I’m proud to live in a country full of opportunity and I hope that we can continue to make America a wonderful place to live.

In memory of those who lost their lives on this day 15 years ago, we will never forget.
