Thankful In 2016, And Beyond

patriotic-thanksgiving-postcard

Here it is Thanksgiving of 2016 and I am thankful. We as a nation have so much to be thankful for. That’s not to say that the United States of America is a perfect place, far from it. I would love to declare that we are a unified nation, but that would be a lie. This recent presidential election has really exposed how divided some segments of the population are.

However, regardless of how one may feel about the election results we all still have so much to be thankful for. The fact that we can vote for our leaders. We have the ability to publicly voice our opinions. We can criticize those same elected leaders without fear of punishment, or even death. I could go on and on in regards to the freedoms that we enjoy in this country.

As 2016 nears it’s end I do hope that we as a nation can begin to work on our differences and come together. In areas where we can not find accord I hope that we can peaceably agree to disagree. As a nation, united we will stand, but divided we will fall.

As I reflect on our country, at this time in history, things may not be ideal but I am thankful. May God continue to bless this great nation in 2016 and beyond.
