I am grateful today to be free. This may seem silly to you-but not to me. I served a foreign mission for my church when I was 21 and to tell you it was an eye opener, is and understatement. I love the United States of America. I am proud to be a member of this country. Our government and its people are not always perfect but we are pretty darn good and I am so glad to have the freedoms that I enjoy daily. I get to say what I want, live where I want, worship as I choose and vote for someone to represent me. If you haven't voted-please do. I was able to do it last Thursday and I felt quite emotional as I left. My gratitude for today is that I was born in the greatest nation in the world.
