I have a small book, that I bought when I was visiting the Ellis Island and The Statue of Liberty. It's called "I was Dreaming to Come to America". I've read that people came to America for no reason other than starting a new life. For millions of immigrants, Ellis Island meant the beginning of a new life.
This is the only country where you're not a stranger, because we are all strangers. It's only a matter of time who got here first.
