Ten days of Thankfulness-Day 7

Today I would like to say how Thankful I am to be an AMERICAN.

I have the right to say anything, to anyone, anywhere at any time.....they do not have to like it, but I have the right to say it.

I have the right to WRITE anything, and have it printed.

I have the right to have whatever spirituality, faith, "religion" or customs and rituals I want.

There are rules and laws and policies, but I and every other American get to have some say in them.

We the people have the PRIVILEGE  of voting in the people to oversee these rules, laws, policies and rights.

We have the best MAIL SYSTEM in the world.

We have decent import/export stradegies

the country is NOT perfect, but it must be better than any other country since so many want to move here.

We have the right to bear arms, should we so desire (I don't want to, but hey if you like guns, get a permit and have at it)

we have rights that protect us from oppression and for the ability to protest  if we have a question with our rights or animals rights or whatever.

I believe in the American falters, but it is still there. I believe in a "chicken in every pot"

I believe in a gov't by the people for the people...

hey the royals can be interesting, but let's face, the countries that have them to be rich and do nothing.  IT is REFRESHING to see the new young royals in some countries...WORKING, and doing charitable works as well...THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU  Princess Diana, for setting such a wonderful example!!  (I still miss you)

I am proud 
and grateful to be

Yes, it's nice to see the younger royals actually doing something other than waving gloved hands as they drive by on special occasions.
