Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving. We in the United States have so much to be thankful for in our lives. We will to be with our families and rejoice in all that God has given us in our lives. We are blessed to be in the United States where we have freedoms and the basic needs for a modern society.
We in the US take so much for granted. We have 24/7 electricity, 4G connections, roads, airports, and so much more in our country infrastructure. We need to ensure that we teach our kids our national history, both good and bad. We must teach the values of a democracy and that the federal government cannot run our lives, but we as individuals are in charge. Look at the recent elections, the people spoke.
Be thankful this year for what we have, our families, the opportunities we have, and the country where we live.

Thanksgiving is uniquely an American holiday.
More than any other holiday, Thanksgiving builds on our history, from a time before we began building our nation. When pilgrims and settlers set forth for the New World, they were inspired and motivated by hopes and dreams, some material and many spiritual. Today, we have dreams of our economy getting better, our combat troops returning home, our government remaining strong against terrorists, and our families being safe.
With the Islamic terrorist attack in Mumbai, India, we know our world and our American values are at risk. When the terrorists attack our allies, we are attacked. They want to disrupt our financial markets, our free market values, our individual freedoms, and our choice of religious freedoms.
We have a lot to be thankful for in the United States--our families, our individual freedoms, our democracy, our financial opportunities, and our religious decisions. We should all thank our military members for their sacrifices and their dedication to our national freedoms and goals. May God bless everyone this holiday season---especially our President who has kept us safe since 2001.
