An American Mosaic... A Nation of Immigrants

A Nation of Immigrants... we all have roots
Today we seem to have short memories and suffer fatigue from information overload and distractions. It is easy to forget that the United States is a relatively young country and one made up of immigrants, with the exception of the Native Americans that were displaced by the new arrivals. Today in 2017 we are still a nation of immigrants, with many we do not recognize because they are not from Europe and not white anglo saxon. They are however following in the footsteps of the first arrivals and are just as diverse a group, following the American Dream. Perhaps this is best illustrated by the fact that Steve Jobs’, the founder of Apple, father was a Syrian immigrant.
