This is one of my favorite months of the year.
It's a big time for birthday's in my family as well as Thanksgiving.
This year, I am so thankful to be an American. So many of us get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life, that we forget the most incredible thing we should give thanks for daily. Everything we are able to do; whether it’s the way we dress, who we love, what we can say, who we vote for is all because we were blessed to be born into a country that allows us to have such a freedom.
A few months ago a girl in my Intercultural course said "she wasn't proud to be an American."
I think that statement hits home to so many of us.
As that course is coming to an end and I learn about some of the other countries laws and lifestyles, I can't help but feel more blessed for the country I live in.
We have so many more opportunities than other people are given.
People risk thier lives trying to enter into this country, because the "American Dream" is more important than life.
I am so proud, so blessed, and so thankful to live in such a wonderful place.
To that girl and anyone who is not proud to be an American, please take note.
Proud to be an American.
