What Are You Thankful For?

There is nothing like an incredible, but horrible, story to really get you thinking about what you’re thankful for. At this moment, it’s the Amanda Knox story; the story that everyone is talking about.

She spent four years in an Italian prison, was originally sentenced 26 years, for a crime that she did not commit. Just recently released after an appeal, Amanda has returned home to Seattle, where we’re told she’s enjoying the things that we take for granted every day: her family, friends, the rare Seattle sunlight, the grass, and probably pretty much everything else.

All I have to say is WOW. For someone to go through such a horrific experience and be able to come back & stand up for herself – to keep fighting… Well, if that’s not inspirational, I don’t know what is.
So, when you are out there today complaining about traffic, midterms, the weather or whatever it is you’re facing – stay positive.

What are you thankful for?
