The American flag - what does it mean to you? My father gave up his entire life to come to the U.S. and start over when he was in his mid-30's. He didn't know anyone and couldn't speak the language. Five years later he became an American citizen, and two months after that I was born. He spent the rest of his life living the American dream, and trying to help his own children - and other people's children - do the same. My father was my first teacher.
