Alabama has a lot to be thankful for in 2017.
While it has not had a major terrorist attack, the number of fatalities in 2017 is up significantly from last year, according to the FBI.
The state has been hit by several high-profile terror incidents in recent years, including the bombing of the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, and the massacre at a gay nightclub in Charleston.
In 2017, the FBI said it recorded 1,734 murders, compared with 1,633 in 2016.
The FBI has previously attributed much of the rise in violent crime in the state to the influx of illegal immigrants, but there are concerns that it is also linked to a lack of community policing.
The Department of Homeland Security recently added 10,000 more Border Patrol agents to help crack down on illegal immigration, and in 2017, Alabama reported nearly 40,000 homicides.
