Day 5 of Thanksgiving

Day 5: I am grateful to live in America! I love this country and still believe in the possibility of the American dream. Tomorrow is an important day for our country as we will ultimately choose a new path for our country or accept what our Nation has become. I am so thankful we have the right to choose our next leader. Over the past 4 years, I have witnessed so many friends and loved ones lose their jobs. My husband lost his job as a railroad engineer just 1 week ago due to decreased coal production in Southeastern Kentucky. He will have other opportunities to relocate within the company, but that means leaving our home and our families. Even if you do not support the coal industry, please think of the other businesses and careers that are being destroyed in this part of the country. Coal miners are not the only people losing their jobs. I have seen clothing stores, restaurants, gift shops, clinics, funeral homes and many other businesses either close or drastically decrease employees during the past 4 years. Our communities are literally dying. Please, exercise your right to vote tomorrow and save our country.



  1. Another Amen here. Sorry Robbie lost his job. That's terrible. Here's hoping you don't have to move.
