A Month of Thanksgiving--100 Words (Freedom)
I’m thankful for freedom.
The freedom I enjoy was given to me.
I’ve done nothing to deserve it or receive it.
Men and women, in uniform, have paid the price for my freedom.
Others died. Sacrificed. Given so much.
All so our nation could be free.
So that people could occupy Wall Street. March on the White House. Vote. Or, stay home on election day.
Strange how freedom works like that, isn’t it?
In the United States we aren’t required to do much.
We are free to choose.
We are also free to give so that others may be free.
