Today I thank God
I'm thankful that it's illegal for a man to beat me up, and that I could defend myself if necessary.
I'm grateful that we have a country where we can protest if we see an injustice happening.
I'm thankful we don't see tanks in the streets shooting people who speak out against government officials.
If we ever did start having our rights taken away, I'd like to be able to speak out without fear of being jailed for my opinion alone, as is the case in many other countries. I'd like to believe that if my rights were to start being stripped away, there would be a vocal group out there fighting for me.
I'm grateful that we have a system whereby regular folks can petition the White House with anything they deem important.
I'm grateful that we have the right to stand for what's right.
I'm thankful that there is a group of people here in America who fear fascism, because I was starting to think they didn't exist anymore.
I'm grateful that we have a system that allows us to teach those people what fascism really is, and what sort of policies we should be wary of.
Thank you God, for what we have in place here.
