I can't believe it has been a year since I started this project. It has been an astounding journey as I blogged about the huge variety of immigrants (both documented and undocumented) that have come to this country seeking a better life, and who have in turn given back so much to this country and the rest of the world. It saddens me to look at the current discourse in this country, for we truly are, more than any other country, a nation of immigrants, without whose contributions the United States would be considerably diminished.
Finally I'd like to quote Albert Einstein, the first person I blogged about one year ago today:
"America is today the hope of all honorable men who respect the rights of their fellow men and who believe in the principle of freedom and justice."
