This one thing has made a huge difference in my life. Find out about it by reading the full article here
As I sit here watching “The Patriot” I can’t help but be appreciative of all those who have sacrificed for the dream and reality that is America. Those who gave the ultimate sacrifice and those who left their families – if even for a short time – in service of a cause they considered greater than themselves.
In salute of all the Patriots: Abe Lincoln, Alexander Hamilton, George Washington, John Adams, Sam Adams, Ben Franklin, Teddy Roosevelt, George Patton, General Sherman, General Grant, FDR, those who will never be known (the unknown soldiers), and many many more I am ever grateful to have been born in this wonderful Land of Opportunity.
As a parent, I haven’t the luxury of principles. I have long feared that my sins will come back to haunt me – and the weight is more than I can bare.
Thank you again to all who have sacrificed so that we may pursue happiness.
As we enter the stereotypical season of thanks I’ve been looking back at things that we’ve accomplished over the years, and I’ve realized that I have been extremely blessed. I’m blessed…
- To have been born in America
- To be healthy
- To have parents from a working class background
- To have had a good education
- To have married a wonderful woman
- To have healthy children
- To have a great company
- To have a great job
- To have been taught: discipline, self-sacrifice, and hard work
For any of you that helped to heap these many blessings on me, I say “Thank You!” now, tomorrow, and forever.
