The Fourth of July is always a huge celebration everywhere in America. The pride we each feel in the greatness of our country is exemplified on this day. As the grandchild of immigrants I consider myself an especially proud American. I take great pride in living in a country where immigrants can come with a dream of creating a better life for themselves and a better future for their children. Over the past two centuries millions have come to this country in search of a better way of life and have found it. This is a country into which people can come and make their fortune, work hard and make a better life for themselves and their family. The land of opportunity is something we should all be proud of. Patriotism is strong and fierce in our country. As the recent tragedies in Boston and Oklahoma showed us, when the chips are down the people of this great nation of ours pull together to help each other. This has been proven in every story of national disaster. Americans, in times of trouble, show courage and strength as one people despite our different cultural and ethnic backgrounds. This year as you celebrate the birth of our nation remember that we are one people and we are strong because we work together for the good of all. God Bless America!
