Students across the Sumter area shared with us what they are most thankful for this holiday season.
I am thankful for my family and my pets. I am thankful for my best friends and my life. But most of all, I am thankful for Jesus dying on the cross for us.

I am thankful for my family because they provide me with food, clothes, toys and school stuff. I'm also thankful for my teachers because they teach me new things and make me smarter. They also teach me to be respectful. And of course, I can't forget my friends who are always there for me when I am sad or upset. They always make me feel welcome and loved. And finally, I am thankful for all the police people who keep us safe and protect the people of America!

Everyone should be thankful even if they get something they didn't want because it can still turn into a good thing."
