Thankful for family

Visiting Los Angeles during Thanksgiving, Amir sat down with his cousin Alex to talk about what they are thankful for.

I had opportunity to sit down and talk with my cousin, Alex Salem in Los Angeles to talk about his thanksgiving. A 22-year old computer programmer, Alex works for Alien War Gaming making video games. 

Q: How do you feel about thanksgiving, and what are you thankful for?

A: I’m so excited for thanksgiving, and I’ve been waiting for this for such long time. I’m thankful for my family around me. That makes happy. Also I’m thankful for every opportunity that god has given to me in my life that I can have the best future for myself.

Q: What is your favorite part of thanksgiving?

A: I have only one part. That is the food part. Thanksgiving is the only week that I don’t really care about like how much I eat. I love cranberry juice and mashed potatoes.

I learned a lot from my cousin and also about his life. I learned how much he is thankful for the life that he has and for his family. I believe that everyone should be thankful for the life they have and to make the most of it.
