"They say that America becomes greater when those who desire to be free can seek refuge here and grow themselves, their free lives, and our country as a better place to live. Some of the greatest soldiers, surgeons, and entrepreneurs came from other countries--souls seeking their freedom and fighting for their right to have a better life. Bitner creates a mosaic of stories with humble beginnings, true tragedies that only strengthen us, and language barriers that we must see as a gift and opportunity, not a deficiency or disability. To teach English language learners is to teach a stronger nation and humanity, altogether, and Bitner translates each chapter in multiple languages for an authentic look at what you and I can do to make our nation a tapestry of celebrated, ethnic understanding. This book hits a homerun through your own heartstrings. A wonderful, timely piece, indeed."
