We don't think about it much, but extremely poor health, that is often not survivable, is rampant in many parts of the world. Not in my neighborhood, but there all the same. I am thankful to be born in the United States, with college opportunities with good and bad role models to guide me. I haven't been to war, nor have I spent any time in prison. Both of these are commonplace for families that just happen to live in the wrong place and the wrong time. Much to be thankful for, when we open your eyes just a bit wider.
