We live in the greatest nation the world has seen. One reason the USA is so special and people flock to come here is this. You can move to France but you'll never be French. You can move to Spain but you'll never be Spanish. You can move to Switzerland but you'll never be Swiss. BUT... the USA is the only nation a person can move to and become an American no matter their place of origin. 

God Bless the United States of America.

Good Afternoon Dennis Neal 

We are a fortunate nation even with all our warts. That being said, we ALL must bear the obligation to preserve the Republic and stand for it against all enemies both foreign and domestic.

Hi Doug... I know this is true from personal experience as it's the story of my family:  "the USA is the only nation a person can move to and become American no matter their place of origin."

Good Morning Nina Hollander, Broker 

You came to mind when I wrote that. My father and his family came to the US in 1920. He was 3. When he came of age he officially became an American through the naturalization process.

Doug Dawes hi Doug... when I came of age I had a choice to become an American, a British subject, or a German citizen. Well... you know which one I chose.

That last paragraph was an Ah Ha for me ! I’ve always pointed out how we are a melting pot and that it is unlikely that many are 100% of one original nationality ……….
