Theorizing Privilege

Today is July 4th, you could look at today as being a privilege if you are an American citizen. Because of the war against Britain we have had the freedom of religion and not be under the king!
I was out on the boat earlier today enjoying the water and good company and I realized that being with my family and having a boat and the time to enjoy this holiday is a privilege. Most people cant even afford to have a boat. But as I mentioned on one of the discussion board, a privilege doesn't have to involve money. Yes having the nicer things and being able to afford new clothes and cars are nice but being in a free country is always nice. We often forget about the little things in life which can be privileges but we don't seem to recognize them because we did'nt have to work for them.
