President’s Corner

Joanne Fisher

As a fairly new American, I have come to appreciate this country especially after having previously lived in two very different countries. While other countries struggle with autocracy and bureaucracy, I believe that this country is still a bright beacon of hope for many who risk their lives to come here. But, while everyone wants freedom, very few desire responsibility. Little do people understand that these two go hand in hand. My wish is that this Independence Day creates a feeling of responsibility, coupled with freedom, for all the citizens and future citizens of this great country.

May God bless you and the USA.

Write on!

Your President,

Joanne Fisher
