How refreshing is this? Can you imagine immigrants coming into America LEGALLY and actually taking the time to learn the English language and our American customs? How old fashioned is that? I wonder if anyone back in 1938 requested Hebrew as a second language, or German, or Italian? Like the millions of immigrants who came to America before them, these newcomers to America are taking the positive steps necessary to become citizens of the greatest country in the world. One must wonder when, and more importantly, why we lost the spirit of folks like these.

This is a "rerun" of an earlier post relating to immigrants coming into the country and their fierce desire to learn English and also to adapt to their new environment. The young lady at the blackboard is teaching her students the intricacies of the English language. It is interesting to note that there are a few Italian names in the class. As I said above, these folks had a fierce desire to be part of America's culture.
