Many of my ancestors came here before the Revolutionary War. I have on my wall, a document from Ellis Island that shows ancestors came and registered there. They all worked hard and assimilated into this land, doing whatever was expected of them to become citizens. I am proud of what they did and what they helped accomplish for this great land.
One of the decedents of these immigrants even went on to become President of the United States. My distant cousin, President Ronald Reagan.
Happy birthday American from one grateful and proud American.
Regular weekly post will be tomorrow.
