I Appreciate My Country – Day 27

8672301046 I appreciate my country! Here’s some reasons why: freedom, choice, laws, due process, opportunities, voting, grassroots democracy, running water, electricity, abundance of resources, history, culture, cities, towns, countryside, football, baseball, volunteerism, mountains, plains, community centers, deserts, National Parks, the men and women who serve her, highways, roads, fields, skyscrapers, monuments, choices, freedom to move around, travel, small towns, holidays, Grand Canyon, the Rocky Mountains, parades, fireworks, beaches, seasons, Thanksgiving holiday, diversity, and last, but not least – even our system of government. While there’s bickering and disagreement often amongst the people who are in public service, I do appreciate that each citizen has the right to vote! Did I mention that I appreciate the choices here? (I think I’ve mentioned it at least 3 times!) Choices and freedoms are what this country is all about and I appreciate that I have this forum to publicly thank my country! This is a freedom I don’t take for granted. It is a freedom that sometimes people forget when they express the “love it or leave it” mentality. I appreciate the freedom in being able to have an opinion, and the respect for the diversity of opinions and the ability to speak or write my opinion freely. I know I am fortunate to having been born in the United States of America! So Happy Birthday, USA! I appreciate you!
