We have much to be thankful for in these United States

As much as we gripe and whine and moan and complain about all the "stuff" going on around us, we Americans have much for which we can be thankful.

I want to list a few things:

1) Freedom of religion. Any person abiding within the boundaries of the United States has the privilege/right/responsibility to worship as their conscience dictates...or not worship at all.

2) Freedom of speech. This one tends to get people in a lot of hot water....but we are free to speak our minds (and sometimes such "speech" shows how empty our minds may be).

3) Freedom of Assembly. Yep, even the illegal/undocumented folk can congregate in these United States. They can even hold up amateur signs telling how "unfair" and "inhumane" we Americans are to those who were not born here....whether it's true or not....and normally it isn't true at all.
