MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Thanksgiving is the official holiday of gratitude, and while it's easy to be grateful for some things such as the Turkey Day Classic or the Iron Bowl… five SEC teams in the BCS top ten and Oregon and Kansas State, there are some more important things we should be thankful for, and as we look back over the past year we are reminded of them.

As we empathize with the victims of Hurricane Sandy, we can be thankful that Alabama's tornado and hurricane seasons have been very mild this year.

Even if your candidates lost on November 6th, you can be thankful that we have free elections in America and that the majority rules.

With unemployment still too high in Alabama you can be thankful if you have a job or have support from someone helping you get by during your unemployment.

When we consider the tragic shootings at a Colorado movie theatre and at an Auburn apartment complex we can be grateful to talented and dedicated law enforcement officers who work hard to keep us safe.

Even as four Americans were killed during a terrorist attack on a U.S. embassy this year, we are reminded to be grateful to the thousands of U.S. military men and women who are not with their families this Thanksgiving, so that we can be with ours.

We have little or no control over many things in life, but we can control our attitudes.  No matter what your situation, if you hearing this editorial, you can be thankful for something.

This week, more than any other, our attitude should be gratitude.
