Today I'm thankful for living in a country where I have freedom. The freedom to be any religion I want to be, to have purple hair and tattoos if I wanted to (for the record - the purple streak grew out; two tattoos), to speak my mind and engage in friendly (and hopefully EDUCATED) debate with no fear of persecution.
I freely admit that I don't agree with certain things about our government, but rest assured - I'd never trade our government for that of...oh, say...Korea or Iran! That said, I do occasionally think of moving to the UK or Canada. Anyone want to come with me?
This is a repost from November 2013 because I feel the same way now as I did then.
