My parents immigrated to the United States 50 years ago not looking for free handouts. What they were looking for was learning to speak English, earning a better life, and contributing to the American Dream. My parents proud of their heritage, which today includes becoming contributors to the American Dream.
A lesson taught by them, leave the world much better than you find it, treat everyone with respect, and contribute more then you take. Be fair to those who do not respect you in return and especially those who do not believe in the American Dream. Because your relentless faith will cause them to finally understand the true importance of America, because it is hard to argue with common sense.
Mostly do not let anyone hold you back! My parents raised four children with English as their primary language, now English is part of all our heritages as well!
THE INGREDIENTS OF INSPIRATION, Is the time and wisdom of people who desire to build bridges across all language boundaries. This wisdom begins with faith in the American Dream and continues for generations to come
