I am thankful that although I might not like who our leaders are, I can criticize them to my hearts content without the fear of being jailed or killed, for now.
I am thankful that every American has the opportunity to get an education, women in some countries are not so fortunate.
I am thankful that we can still worship freely in whatever faith we choose, or not at all.
I am thankful that we don't have to deal with daily rocket fire raining down on our heads from neighbours who want us dead, and who have no intention of sticking to a cease-fire.
I am thankful, as a woman, to be living in a land where I am not forced to stay at home or cover myself up in order to head outdoors, and then only in the company of a male relative.
I am thankful and grateful for our military troops abroad and stateside.
Happy Thanksgiving to you all! Enjoy your turkey, ham or your Tofurkey if you happen to be a veggie.
