Today is Thanksgiving! This whole month and my “thanksgiving challenge” has been in honor of today. Despite everyone’s seemingly materialistic love for Black Friday, I like Thanksgiving Thursday 🙂
I’m grateful for the forefathers of America, of these United States. They were brave and innovative enough to not only move to a land unknown but also to create a government that was unheard of. They established freedoms which had not been known before. Freedom to pursue life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That we have unalienable rights given by the Divine. The United States is a place like no other with government that is constantly changing. However I think it’s important that today as citizens we must require our government to live by the freedoms and doctrines which were established when this country was setting out. I’m grateful for the freedom to be me and to be Jewish and to practice my Judaism and to attend university and to choose the friends I want and to go places I hope to see. This is freedom and it’s something that I think can easily be forgotten and taken for granted. Well I’m thankful for it! I’m thankful to live in the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave.
Happy Thanksgiving! G-d bless America!
