Friday Fictioneers: Thank You
I said the pledge of allegiance as a child in school. I didn’t know what it meant until I learned how women are treated in other countries, and how dictators treat their people in the name of power.
As a woman in America, I have rights.
As a person in America, I have freedom.
If someone doesn’t like it—too bad. There are laws to protect me.
There are those who fought for my freedom. Though I have not lost anyone, I value their sacrifice.
I am grateful.
For any service people reading this: With all my heart, Thank You.

If you are a service person, leave a comment, so I can say thank you in person. And so any others can also say thank you if they want to.
