What I'm Thankful For -- Day 3

Thanksgiving is in 22 days.

On November 1 I started a daily post in which I list one thing (or set of things) I'm thankful for each day.

Day 3
Even though I'm not pleased with the overall outcome, I'm thankful to live in a country where we have the right to choose our own leaders without fear of reprisal or worry that (most of the time) our votes will be counted. While I'm not thrilled that a significant portion of my home state of Virginia is way more socially conservative than I am, again, I have the opportunity to voice my opinions with my vote.

All too often we forget that this is a right that people fought for, a right that not all people—even in this day and age—are lucky enough to have. So even if, like me, you woke up a little disillusioned about this year's election results, feel thankful you had the opportunity to participate.
