And when you have a kid who's not like every other kid, that's what you want most for them.
    I'm thankful you have surrounded yourself, your son, and the rest of your family with wonderful positive people. Blessings on you as you make the best of each day!

    I have so much for which to be thankful that it would take a very long time to write it down.

    I can mirror the comments about Christ, church, America, freedom etc, we should all be thankful for at least one of them, or anything that makes our lives so much better than most places these days.

    I am just thankful that I can be thankful!

    There are so many people I am thankful for, my grandparents who have supported me my entire life, without them I wouldn't be able to afford to go to college or have faith that I could better my self, my mother who loved me and my brothers and stayed with my dad who was an abusive alcoholic and was absolutely terrible to her and through all of that she never waivered, my girlfriend of 3 years who showed me I could do anything that I set my mind too. I hope everyone on this board has at least one person they can say truly changed their life in huge way.


    Happy thanksgiving to everyone! It's time for me to go show my girlfriends dad how a real man shoots!

Thank you to those who have gone before us to give and maintain our liberty - may we be worthy of your sacrifice.

    Thank you to each of you who has felt thankful for someone else!
    Yes RAL, me too. I was listening to the scanner this morning and again tonight after work and our Sheriff's Dept. has been very busy. Those men and women are under unbelievable pressure and I'm certainly glad they're willing to do that work.

    Well. My Foster Dad. USN, Academy Class of '43. Went straight to command of a ship in the Pacific (he is quoted and mentioned in several well read books on the Pacific Naval War).

    After the war, he put his hand up and went back as EOD to get rid of all of the Jap bombs left on the islands.

    On retiring from the USN after 30 years, he taught me to be honest, hard working, be humble, to take physical pain and to always have a subtle sense of humor.

    He lived to be 85.

    May he always have Fair Winds and Following Seas!

    Even though it is well understood that the Marines guard the gates of Heaven, I know that my dad is there busting thier nuts to 'pay attention to detail'.

    Semper Fi,
