The United States of America means the world to me. It allows me the freedom to express my thoughts and feelings about things that will affect my life and the well being of my family. There is so much in the news that saddens me about people who are ruled by dictators, live in abject poverty or are dying of a disease that would be completely curable with a simple diet change or medication that is easily acquired here. These unfortunate people have little or no chance of ever changing their circumstances for the better. Even though we have many troubling issues to worry about in our country right now, I thank God everyday for allowing me to live where virtually anything is possible with a little perseverance.
