I know that sometimes, especially living in the United States, it can be hard to be thankful for what we do have instead of always wanting more. We are surrounded by so much it can be hard to realize how lucky we are to have the things we do have.
We’ve all faced different obstacles throughout our lives, but all of us here at UB have one thing to be especially thankful for: obtainable access to higher education. An education is one of the greatest gifts a person can receive, and unfortunately many people do not have access to one.
In fact, we all can be thankful for the education we have received throughout our lives; we are lucky to live in a place where our government provides a free education to its children. But that is only the start of education. The lessons we have learned simply by living, from the people around us, are a large part of education. We should be thankful for the people who have supported and inspired us to follow our dreams.
Now matter where you are or who you’re with, I wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving!
