People all over the world wake up one day and say or think to themselves, “I’ve got to get to America.” Watching America’s Got Talent last night, because…people reaching for their dreams, I’ll watch it every time but a singer says, “I gave up everything to come to America, because that’s where the opportunity is.” We’re a nation built on this; of individuals all over the world waking up and saying, “I’ve got to get to America.”
“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!” We are a nation of strivers. It’s in our DNA. So many come here with nothing and make something. It is this constant regeneration that makes us strong, makes us great.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
Go out and pursue some happiness, treat people the way you like to be treated. Happy Birthday America. You’re Awesome.
