I have an overwhelming selection of free or cheap museums, theaters,science centers and aquariums to go too.
If my child gets sick, there are 24 hour pharmacies and urgent care centers that I can take him too in the middle of the night, 15 minutes away.
I am grateful that I get to choose my spouse, and choose to leave him if I want too.
I am GRATEFUL, that my child doesn't h ave to drop out of school at 9 years old to work at a sweatshop for 60 hours a weeks you can have those stain free clothes on your back.
I am GRATEFUL, that even in poverty, my husband doesn't have to make the decision to take a job that will kill him in three years to make sure we get provided for ,for just one more till I am widowed.
I am grateful people are no longer hung for something stupid like stealing a horse or gold, and that you get a trial at all.
I am grateful that I can go to a pool and it is clean and has a lifeguard.
I am grateful that I can fly in a plane and know that it is as safe as can be for 10,000 metal tubes being in the sky at any given moment.
I am grateful there is no longer a draft.
I am grateful that you are no longer killed for the color of your skin.

I know the history of Christmas. I said it was a celebration of an event, not an anniversary.
Wanna know something crazy? I wasn't born on Fathers Day either. Don't tell my kids.
