Tax Day —

Tax day doesn’t bring joy to many. But today I am thankful for my job. I’m thankful for a community, state, and country where my taxes go. I’ve been to countries where the government was corrupt or unstable (and sometimes both). I’ve been to places where what the government said went, no questions asked. While I don’t agree with every decision made by the US government, I am happy to be safe and free.

Today’s joy is the joy of a functioning stable government.
