My forefathers were extremely plain people, poor and humble, but I have received one very precious heritage from them. They have never given me a famous name, nor money, nor property, nor lovely heirlooms. I know almost nothing of them beyond my grandparents. Not even my childhood memories are very happy ones. And certainly no one has bequeathed me a handsome face. What, then, is my legacy? Many years before I was born, my ancestors came to America and made their home in this beautiful land. That is my great heritage- just the chance to live here, and to bring up my children here, free men and women, where we still have a chance at life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It is my greatest blessing, worth much more than gold or castles, and I am deep- ly grateful to my forefathers.
