Thanksgiving is a day where we take the time to reflect on what we're thankful for. Most people say their families, friends and their kids. That's nice and all but let's be less cliche and more realistic. We're AMERICANS and we can be pretty selfish, which is why I created a list of the REAL things Americans are thankful for this Thanksgiving.
