A Month of Gratitude: Nov. 2nd

I'm grateful to live in a country where I can cast a secret ballot. I'm grateful to live in a country anyone can run for political office.  I'm grateful to live in a country where I have a choice when I vote.

In 1985 when I was a senior in high school, I had the opportunity to visit the then Soviet Union.  It was a life-changing trip and I learned much that has stuck with me to this day.  One thing I'll always be grateful for is freedom, and for those who have defended my freedom -- now and in the past -- with the ultimate sacrifice.
