You know, since being in Canada for the past few months, going through a heated election, and not being able to celebrate Thanksgiving today in the traditional ways I’m used to, hearing the National Anthem again for the pre-game NFL game today just sounded different to me. It sounded better. It sounded like home.
Don’t get me wrong, I like it here and it’ll be sad to leave in a few weeks. But there’s something about hearing that anthem again. It represents a special place.
Today, among other things, I’m thankful to be an American…warts and all.
