We say what we are thankful for:

the food on the table,

the hands capable of making it,

family,

education,

culinary,

video games and consoles–hard-earned luxury items

freedom to walk in peace

without war.

Before we eat,

while we eat,

during the time in which we eat,

another place is fighting a war.

So we are thankful for them

for fighting for us

so we can eat and be thankful

in peace.

p.s. Yesterday was Memorial day. My sister and I made dinner, and before we had dinner my family of 5 said grace and what we are thankful for. Here’s to the men and women who fought for us then, and continue to fight for us now. We should remember what we have everyday because of them.
