Thirty Days of Thanks - Day 13 - November 13
A few years ago, I read the book No Apology The Case for American Greatness by Mitt Romney. I knew then that Mitt was a man with a special love for America. It was with enthusiasm and pride that I did my best to help get Mitt Romney elected as president of the United States.
It's been a week since the election that broke my heart. During that week I've thought a lot about the Romney family and the enormous sacrifice they made because they love the United States. Mitt and Ann didn't have to put themselves out there and open themselves up to the ridicule, hate, and outright lies. They did it because they knew that they had a special set of skills and determination that could help right the course of our country.
I was devastated at the results of last week's election. I'm sad our country won't have the chance to see what great qualities they'd have brought to the White House. I'm happy for them that they don't have to take on the mess that's been created over the last few decades.
So today I'm thankful for an entire family who willingly offered themselves up for the good of our country.
