Proud to be an American

Regardless of how this day turns out, I am so thankful to be an American. I'm so grateful to know that I have the right to vote for the leader of my country. I have a voice. It may be a small voice but I do have one. I want to thank all of those that have fought, and continue to fight and die, for me to have this right. I am free to do this without fear of harm. I am free to worship as I see fit. What a blessing to live in this great land.

Agreed!! I don't always know what's going on in politics (because I try to ignore it most of the time), but I love that I do have a say in who I'm going to be ignoring ;)

Well put, my dear! Only I have absolutely no voice so election time always makes me a bit sad. But not sad enough to convert!
