Whenever I'm in the presence of someone who came to this country from a far away land for a better life and opportunities, my heart fills with pride and happiness -- for them and for us. And sometimes I get a little tear in my eye at the realization that people, other than just us, know that this really is a great country. This President James Garfield dollar coin was given to me today as a belated Christmas present by such a person. Thank you, my fellow American and new friend.
