Despite the political woes, economic fluctuations, sociological issues, and whatever else is plaguing us these days, it is a blessing to live in America. I have the freedom to do whatever I choose to do, as long as I don’t break any laws. I have the freedom to practice whatever religion I choose, even if others don’t agree with my religious beliefs. I have so many privileges that are not in the realm of possibility for folks in some other countries. So “A” is for America and I am very grateful we won our independence from Great Britain.
