Discovering America

unnamed-2

When we came to America, a long time ago, we prayed and we placed our flag at the shore. Some of us came in search of adventures, some in search of dreams. Lots of us were running away from nightmares. We brought our religion, we brought our culture, we brought our traditions. And some of the natives received us well, others resisted; but still, we were able to make it and we prevailed. We are still exploring the place, conquering it, and making it our new home. We are the immigrants, and every day, every moment, we are discovering America.
