Blood,Sweat & Tears - Tale Of A Son Of Immigrants

There's a story told from ancient times that nations were scattered ( the first immigrants? ) at the Tower of Babel.Moving of people(immigration) across lands has been a part of the patchwork of the histories of nations. The Silk Route , Ellis Island , the QUEST for freedoms , new lives and financial independence are all in the trails of immigrants.In almost every instance immigrants have worked exceedingly hard , hardly quite moan , rarely take time off , don't call in ill , sharp on the job , loyal to their new masters and the land in comparison to native-to-the-place-population.In recent times some nations practically owe their place in the economic sun to the industry of immigrants(,
,, )." I work on four-mou land ( < an acre ) year in year out , from dawn to dusk but after taxes and own needs , I make $20 a year here . You make that much in one day ( in America ).No matter how much it cost to get there or how hard the work is , America is still better than all this !"- own words of a Chinese immigrant. An old Asian proverb says deal your bread to strangers , be hospitable , cast it upon the waters ...... . In a shrinking world and shriekers shrieking from pulpits , let's live with the inevitable , let's discover compassion and relationships again !
