I am thankful for modern transportation.
I just drove over 400 miles in a single day... through rain and wind and dark of night...over the river and through the woods. Even a few decades ago taht would not have been possible. A century ago it would have been impossible. (that would have been 1911, you know!)
I have also flown (FLOWN!!!!) over countries and oceans multiple times to visit family, move for a job, or go to college.
We live in such an amazing world!
