Personal View: What I am thankful for

Karys Marcum, Staff Reporter

Thanksgiving is one of the few days of the year where you get together at a relative’s house and eat amazing food that our amazing families cook.

I know some families don’t have all if the privileges that we do. Some kid’s aren’t able to be with her family to eat dinner and be under a roof with warmth. To be able to go to a family to have a nice dinner with a roof over my head and food on my table is one of the greatest blessing anyone could ask for.


I am thankful for so many things in my life. First of all I am thankful for all of my family and friends because they are always there for me when i need them most and support my through all of my decisions in life. I’m also thankful for all of the food that’s put on my table a night. I’m thankful for the knowledge that god has given me, I’ve learned to cook, clean,and all of my knowledge of school. I’m thankful that I was able to have a second chance in life when i left the hospital as a baby. I am so grateful that i haven’t been put in an accident that put me in the hospital with a life or death situation.  Finally I’m thankful that god has given my mom and dad the chance to survive when they were in a life or death situation.


If you know someone that their family is missing someone maybe show them that you are there for them. Remember not everyone has the same opportunity or chances that you might have.
