Freedom

Happy Veteran's Day!

Last night I was looking up the results from Tuesday's election and I noticed the low percentage of people voting.  I think it's sad that there are people in the world who don't have the right to vote - who are ruled by a tyrant or a dictator and would LOVE the opportunity to choose those in power making the decisions that effect their lives. I have to admit that I probably don't know enough about those I elected, but I did vote. I exercised my right as an American citizen.  I love living in a country where we have such freedoms and where I can meet with my Bible study group and not be afraid of being harmed. We are so lucky here and take it for granted.  Just like we take our salvation for granted.  We still have those freedoms thanks to the men and women who over time have sacrificed their lives, time with their families, and selflessly give of themselves for something bigger (our nation and what it stands for). I'm so grateful!
