Please take the time to be thankful for the country in which we live and for those that sacrificed and helped us achieve and build it. Be grateful that we are able to make choices, believe in what we want to and raise our children in ways that we feel are fit. We often forget that we have such freedom and peace; some countries can only dream of such luxuries.
