I think we, as Americans, often take our freedom for granted. When we have never lived anywhere else, or have traveled extensively across the world, we don't realize really how great we have it. I often find myself complaining about so many things wrong with our country and government (healthcare, for one), but at the end of the day, we have it 100 times better than most countries. Do I really need to list all the reasons??
We have it good here after all. This year I vow to appreciate everything America has to offer, imperfections and all. America is truly a great country to live in and I am proud to be an American!
