Birthday Graditude

It is a gift to have had freedom in my life.

I am working at a job I chose, after attending a college I chose, after growing up in a house my parents chose in a town that they chose.

Such a gift, and one that's denied to so many. If you're likewise so lucky, take a moment to remember those that aren't. Thousands of innocent civilians lose their lives every day to hunger, to preventable disease.

You aren't one of them, simply because you have the ability to access this blog.

Isn't that remarkable?
