Have you ever stopped and thought, ‘What would it really be like to not live in America?’ I mean, we’re the ‘land of the free’ and ‘home of the brave’ right? We live in the greatest country in the world.

I think that if we really stopped and took a moment to think about where we are, we would all come to the conclusion that despite all of it’s problems, we do live in a fantastic country. One where we are free to worship as we choose. Free to live, work and drive where we want, and the freedom to have as many kids as we so desire.

I really am thankful for all of those things, especially when I stop and think about the alternative. I’m thankful for the people who have made it possible throughout our 200+ year history. Because without them, the people to actually made it happen, freedom would just be an ideal.

Hope you enjoyed this post. If you’d like to check out my other 30 Days of Thanksgiving post you can do so here.
