    I sometimes forget how lucky I am.
    Hope you enjoy hearing this old cowboy as much as I did.

    Thanks Dayton and to Baxter Black for a job well done. Too often, we do forget who has made our life and our country what it is today and tomorrow.

    Also, a lot of wisdom about our nation defining what poverty is every day.

    Thank you Dayton! I could go on and on about the freedoms we have that people take for granted, but I won't, because most won't care, which makes me sad...

    It doesn't matter which candidate wins, you still live in the best country on the planet. Why hate other people because they think "the other guy" might win? They have the same rights you do, and they THINK the other way... so what?

    I live every day in pain, but yet, EVERY day I wake up and realize that there are people MUCH worse off than me.

    I'll end with that. Anything else I want to say could be taken the wrong way by some people (although I think most on this site wouldn't have a problem)...

    Thanks Dayton we ALL need to hear and reflect on those statements every now and then... I think we as a population on the whole are SO ungrateful and take our freedoms and liberties for granted so many times.

    Thanks again hon!
