We live in a great and wonderful country; the creation of which was inspired of God. And it continues to this day because of the love and dedication of its citizens.
More importantly, it is because of the love and dedication of the citizens who put themselves in harm's way for our sake. I am an Air Force brat living near an Air Force base with dozens of military people in my ward (congregation). I am grateful for the sacrifice that they make and the sacrifice of their families. I don't say it often enough: Thank you and God bless you.
