Yes, I too am thankful to have been born and reared in this country 
and that my forefathers survived.  This might be a good time for us 
all to review the history of our country---the original migrations from 
the Asian mainland, the tribal developments, conflicts over territory, 
incursions from various nations searching for treasure, immigration, 
war, etc.

Yes, that is always the case.  To the strong or more numerous or 
more advanced technologically goes the victory.
