Generations of immigrants came to America and assimilated into our society. Sure, they kept many of their customs and, thank God, many of their favorite recipes, thereby contributing to the richness that was America. But in general, they brought hope for a better life and a great work ethic, not hate for their newly adopted country. But then, past generations of immigrants weren't muslims or progressives, were they?

It is reasonably simple to find your way here in America: Follow the rules. Integrate. Drop labels. Assimilate. Be productive. Repeat. Before long, you begin to experience the freedom that comes with being an American.

It's really that easy. After all, this is America; that "Shining City on a Hill" -- a nation of immigrants, magnificently colored by a diversity of persons and cultures amalgamated into "one nation under God." That's who we are and how we roll. The beauty of it is...those who are uncomfortable with that... are free to leave. No harm, no foul. Something the Tsarnaev brothers should...
