Presidential Debate contd

I watched a little bit of the debate last night & then watched some of the observations & reflections on twitter, fb, etc. This election seems to be very polarized & people have extremely strong opinions & feelings about the candidates & their positions.
With these things in mind, here are some things for which I’m thankful:
*I’m thankful for a country that facilitates a peaceful transition between leaders – I’ve visited many countries that have very violent leadership transitions & the populations always suffer tremendous hardships from such unnecessary violence
*I’m thankful that people care, even if they express their opinions in unpleasant ways – apathy doesn’t improve anything
*I’m thankful for the opportunity to participate in the political process
*please vote – the end 🙂
