I am thankful for having freedom for many reasons. I think this is one of the things I take for granted too often when really, I should be more appreciative. I am very luck to live here in the United States of America, because we have many rights and freedoms. For one, we have freedom of speech. This allows us to say what we think and what our opinion is. Imagine if you couldn't say what you believed or thought out loud and had almost no say in anything! For some, that lifestyle still exists in other parts of the world. Another freedom we have is the freedom of Religion. This Amendment allows us to choose freely which religion to follow, unlike being forced to follow, or not follow a certain religion. We are also very fortunate to be able to roam the streets freely and to not live in fear as others might.
Another thing I am thankful for is my family for many reasons. My family consist of my mom, dad, two older brothers, younger sister, and my aunts, uncles, and cousins. If it weren't for them, I wouldn't be the person I am today. They taught me life lessons, and showed me the right from wrong. They provided me with a roof over my head, food, and they do so much for me and my siblings. My Mom and Dad help me with so much. They drive me whenever I have to film, attend fundraisers and conferences, and just does anything in their power. Even if I don't say this enough, thank you! And for my brothers and sister, even though we may argue sometimes, we always overcome it and you guys make me laugh. I am grateful, and thankful to have such a wonderful family.
Last, but not least, I am thankful for my friends. They are the ones I go to for anything and they are always there for me. They're so optimistic and funny. They provide me will overflowing support in anything I do. I rely on them so much even if they don't know it. I can go to them when I'm feeling down, and they can pick me back up just like that. They make me laugh and smile and just genuinely happy. I can go to them to talk about anything and everything, and they give the best advice. They're a good influence for me and a great role-model. I never thought that I would be friends with sixth, eighth, and even ninth graders, but in fact, I am very blessed to have them in my life. Honestly, without them, I wouldn't know what I would do. I hope they know how much I'm thankful, and grateful to call them my friends.
Overall, while we stuff our faces, or for others, watch football, keep in mind some things to be thankful for. For me, I am thankful to have freedom, have such a wonderful and caring family, and great supportive friends. I'd also like to thank Mr.M for being such a great teacher and I am very thankful for getting in the media class. This class has been such a great learning experience and opened up lots of opportunities for me. Thanks for reading this weeks constructed response. The question is, What are you thankful for? Have a safe and awesome thanksgiving everyone! Bye!
