American Dream

grandpa

Happy Birthday to the man who started it all, my grandfather.  This photo was taken when he first came to America with nothing more than a dream (he was about my age).  He taught himself to speak English, pulled himself up by his own bootstraps, and is the epitome of the American Dream.  I am so very proud to have come from this man.
