47 years ago…in a land far far away…

…I got on a plane to start a new life in the United States. My gratitude, to my parents and grandparents, aunts and uncles, who suffered for it on both sides of the Florida Straits, is immeasurable. My gratitude to this great country, for great it is, is equally immeasurable. God bless America.
