Proud to Live in America

BY ROSALIE J. GERDING

I enjoyed reading about Vinay & Puneet Behl in The Last Word column ( JofA , Aug.06, page 96). It’s so lovely to hear from foreign-born individuals who are happy to be here in the United States.

When I see and read about how much hate there is in the world for America and Americans, I get very frustrated and sad for all of us. How nice that these two CPAs are so proud to be here!
