    certificate, and while it's just a photocopy it is very special to me.  I get infuriated when I hear people try to label today's immigrants as "others"-- I imagine my beloved grandmother at 9 years old (just two years younger than my son is now) holding her mother's hand as they disembark in New York. They were the "others" of their day.  Yet they were grateful and revered this country deeply throughout their lives.  And probably knew infinitely more about what this country stands for than those pocket constitution-carrying Republicans.
