that among these are Life

This 4th of July I was especially grateful to be living in this country. Grateful that I have as good of a chance as anyone (with my diagnosis), anywhere in the world, to survive this thing.

I love that this country gives everyone a chance. I'm not saying it's perfect, or equal. But it does seem like no matter where we came from, or who we are, we have the chance at The Good Life. Whatever we decide that is.

I love how we take a baby born too early, or a cancer caught too late, and against all odds, try and save that life. And because we have the resources, technologies, and value life, so many times we succeed!

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness."
