When I voted last week, there were no tanks or Molotov cocktail-flinging protesters blocking my way.

When I walked across the street yesterday, no man beat me for not wearing what someone else’s religion thinks I should wear.

When I got up today, I was not forced to go perform a job I hate because that’s what my government told me I had to do for the good of the state.

When I go to sleep tonight, I will have no fear of being rousted from my bed by a secret agency and held against my will.

I can make my life what I want it to be because of the sacrifices of countless others.

From a very grateful American, Happy Veterans Day.
