Since it is almost Thanksgiving, I wanted to do a survey asking people what they are thankful for. I, myself, am thankful for a lot of things: my boyfriend, my family and friends, the roof over my head, food on the table, and happiness. Even though happiness is temporary, I enjoy every moment that I get to smile naturally. I asked 25 people, “What are you thankful for?” and these were their answers.

Mr. West: I am thankful that I will be able to spend time with my family and friends.

Mrs. Cragg: My family.
