Great choice for this! Not in those exact words, of course, but I look at my friends, family, neighbors, & complete strangers & think the same thing... People get so caught up in complaining that they forget (we're all guilty).

I've been thinking about this so much since I got back from my trip Chelle. Even with all that has went on in the past 8 years we still have a higher level of freedom and wealth than many. The biggest blessing is that we have the ability to change our situation. We choose what we want our country to be. But only if we have the courage to express an opinion and vote with our ideals.
