I would like to reflect on this important holiday that I have been celebrating since the first year I arrived in this beautiful country twenty-three years ago. This is the best country in the world in many ways. The “Land of the free and the home of the brave” became my home, my country, and the place to raise my children and for me to grow as a better person. A place to live, love, and die for without thinking twice. I want to thank many people past to present for making this country what it is, and making it possible for people such as me to move here and become part of this great experiment in democracy. We have to keep passing on our love for this nation. May God bless America, the land that I love.
