Thank God I Am American

With the primaries in two major states tomorrow and the banter back and forth between the Democratic candidates, I was humbled by the Russian "elections" on Sunday. How lucky to live in a country where we have three viable candidates for president. How lucky that our current president didn't pick those candidates. How lucky that if you want to be a candidate, you can run.

I think we get mixed up in our little world over here and forget that people in other places--as democratic as they say they are--are not. I feel so blessed that I can have this blog and say whatever I want without worrying about my own safety or that of my family. I feel blessed that we have a ballot filled with competant people who are somewhat, on some level, interested in the good of the country.

We should remember that this week as the primaries continue.

This is so true. I am not always proud of America, but I am so grateful that I was born here.
