Thanksgiving #24: Being an American Citizen

Posted on November 24, 2011 at 1:25 AM

On this day of Thanksgiving, I am thankful for my country and the benefits that citizenship allows me. I am allowed great freedoms as an American citizen that millions of other people will never know. While government is not perfect, there is Democracy within America. The advances in technology, medical services, and social services that America has made are impressive, especially while living in a country in the infancy of such systems. There is a pride, comfort, and confidence that I carry being an American citizen (even when I share I am from Kansas and no one knows where that is at in America).
