Happy 4th of July!.

Despite of a few hateful, ignorant and arrogant groups of people, closed-minded to the contributions of immigrants of all types and perhaps fearful of real competition, the United States of America –the country I love, the country I call home too, continues as the land of opportunities. A place where we can fight for our rights, be and express ourselves, innovate, re-invent, co-create, and accomplish ours and others’ goals a little more and a little further than we could do it somewhere else. I LOVE YOU USA!
I feel honored that I am one of your citizens. I do my best to be an active member of our society, and to exercise compassion as much as judging. I trust that immigration reform will give many others such opportunity. Happy 4th of July!
