Listen, I know I’m lucky to have an American passport. It allows me all sorts of benefits and I’m proud of it. We’re born behind borders—it’s not always fair, and I seem to have been on the lucky side. But a passport is a passport. And I’m thankful for mine.
I’m thankful to have a passport. I’m thankful for the opportunities to travel—the chance to see the world, to get out and to move. To see new things, try new foods, explore new places. To meet amazing people.
We live in an amazing world. With volcanoes and skyscrapers, amazing foods and cultures. Interesting people, fabulous cuisines and breathtaking scenery. New things are found every day. Okay, that last thing isn’t from our planet…but you get the idea.
And with my passport, all of these things are within reach. Minus the hassle of visas and plane tickets, but hey, this world of ours—it’s pretty damn cool. And I’m thankful to be able to see so much of it. I hope you’re able to.
Let’s rock this world of ours. Because it’s A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.
