Happy Birthday, Mister President

These words from Ronald Reagan, who would have been 100 today, spoken on his 79th birthday, as blogged by Ken Dychtwald on The Huffington Post: “In this day and age, you could move to Brazil, but in so doing you wouldn’t ever be considered a Brazilian. If you moved to Japan and spent the rest of your life there, and even became fluent in the language and culture, you’d never be accepted as Japanese. Similarly, if you chose to live and work in France, and even raised your family there, the French would surely never think of you as a Frenchman. But anyone who moves to America from countries like these and gains citizenship, can become an American!” So true, Mr. President, so true.
