I have had a good life so far. I'm not at a great place right now, but I have much to be thankful for. I have had a great life because: I am blessed to have grown up in the greatest country in the world (IMHO). I have two arms, two legs, sight and hearing. I am able to provide for myself. I have always had loving and supportive parents. I've never gone hungry or been homeless. Compared to people living in Communist Cuba, or Darfur or war-torn Iraq, I have lived like a King.
