My family came to America through Ellis Island in 1904. After many generations we’ve never forgotten why our family game to this country. To be American is to acknowledge that American Exceptionalism is not God-given but something we earn when we work hard, smart, and with unshaken integrity; when we show compassion and love to those different than us; and when we hold our leaders and institutions accountable for the wrongs they do in our name. Anyone willing to take on that responsibility, is someone I would be honored to call a fellow American.
