Be thankful that we live in a country that allows legal immigration,

that the Gulf of Mexico is returning to good  ecological health,

that Montgomery, Mobile and Huntsville are not declaring bankruptcy,

and that Alabama's constitution is finally getting overhauled.

Even if they are underfunded, be thankful for public schools, and good teachers.

And be thankful someone did want the job of state superintendent of education.

Be thankful that the vast majority of school children don't bully their peers and that most college coaches are great mentors and role models for children.
