Proud to be an American

March 6, 2003  7:41 PMGratitude comes to mind this day of Thanksgiving. Everyday of the year I am thankful to have been born an American. I am proud to be an American. My love for my country runs deep. So grateful am I to the people whom have defended my right to be free and have fought to help others to have such freedoms as well. Daily I count my many blessings one by one. May I never take for granted what God has given to me. Happy Thanksgiving to all!
