FAV QUOTE FRIDAY | JULY 4th EDITION: America The Beautiful Nation Of Immigrants: Still A Beacon Of Hope and Strength

"Everywhere, immigrants
have enriched and strengthened

the fabric of American life."
~ John F. Kennedy 

"I like to see a man proud
of the place in which he lives.
  I like to see a man live
so that his place will be proud of him."
~Abraham Lincoln 

Whether your family was one of the
founding families of the United States,
or they had the Statue Of Liberty greet
their entrance to Ellis Island,
or if you're a much more recent Citizen - 
we are a grand 'nation of immigrants',
all come together within a country that
finds such strength in its diversity that,
remarkably, in all of history,
there has never been anything quite like it.


Happy 4th Of July!

May you have many more.
