I am thankful for the United States of America. I love my country. I know it's not perfect and I certainly have my own laundry list of things I would alter if I could, but I don't believe that it is in need of a fundamental change (as a certain candidate has claimed). Our democratic republic is the best thing going! I've visited over 20 foreign countries, with my stays ranging from 30 minutes to four months. There are several to which I long to return, but none in which I would want to live. This is the home I (Lord willing) will love until He returns or calls me home.
