Ethan W., Texas
It’s true I’ve gone through turmoil;
it’s true I’ve been through pain.
but I’ll never be the same.
I have everything I need now:
family, a dog, and a friend.
I have things to be thankful for
all the way until the end.
No matter how much I’m hurting,
I have God right by my side.
He carries me through hardships,
and he’s there for me to confide.
I have a job and am moving fast.
I have people looking after me.
I’m on my way to success
and get along with everybody.
So, I have a lot to be thankful for:
my road to college education,
my future endeavors, and
my wonderful nation.
