"Not until I had lived year after year under totalitarian domination did I learn to fully appreciate the freedoms that Americans have fought for and have won. Growing up in America provided the training grounds necessary to endure the North Vietnamese attempts at dehumanizations. Even though America has made its mistakes, it still provides a means to correct them. In this nation I can assemble with others, read from free press, criticize and hear criticism, worship as I wish, and influence the direction of my country by voting. Here I am free to hope, to dream, to succeed."
