I am thankful for the land of the free and the home of the brave! I am proud to be an American! I am thankful for the forebearers who came seeking religious freedom and settled here. I am thankful for the pioneers who braved the elements, the trials, the ridicule, the unfairness and held fast to their freedom of religion and didn't waver... but instead stayed true through it all and continued to worship as they knew the truth. I am thankful for our opportunity to vote and have a voice, even when it turns a different way that I am wanting. I am thankful that Proposition 102 passed and that Propoosition 8 in California passed and in Florida. I am thankful for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain. I am thankful for purple mountains majesty, above the fruited plain. God Bless America!
