In this month of November, in which Thanksgiving is celebrated in the United States, I would like to say a few words to accompany this special tradition. I want to take the opportunity to reflect on the things that I have and that I would like to give appreciation for and I will do it in two points. The first point consists of gratitude for life the second deals with gratitude for the opportunity to be in the US. For the first point, I will leave you with these verses that say everything:

Thanks to life that has given me so much

It gave me two eyes that when opened

Can perfectly distinguish black from white

And the sky so high with its starry scape

 

Thanks to life that has given me so much

It has given me sounds and the alphabet

With all the words I can think and say

Mother, friend, brother

 

Thanks to life that has given me so much

It has given me the step of my feet

With which I walk city streets and countrysides

Beaches, mountains and plains

 

Thanks to life that has given me so much

You gave me my heart which beats

When I look at the result of the human being

When I see all the good, so far from the bad

When I see deep into your clear eyes

 

Thanks to life that has given me so much

It has given me laughter and it has given me tears

So I can distinguish between joy and pain

The two materials that form my song

And your song, is the same song

 

Thanks to life that has given me so much

Passing onto the second point I wanted to show my gratitude for the opportunity to be here in the United States. I have been here a little more than four months and all of this time I have been having a great time with the family I live with. And with the people around me here, I have found people with whom I can I can talk and laugh, share meals and have fun and the experience to know more people and more places wherever I go.

Lastly, I want to offer huge gratitude for my parents. It is a huge blessing to have the both of them in my life and although I am far away I find that they are always helping me to get ahead in life.

Thanks so life that has given me so much.
