"America is the land, not just of my home, but of my heart. Why? Because I understand the hard-won freedoms that make America so unique and great. Both sets of my grandparents came to the United States on boats from Eastern European countries to escape oppressive governments. My father fought in WWII to protect the highly valued liberty we enjoy. My husband served both in Vietnam and in three runs for public office. And together we work to keep the true American dream alive in the public square. Why? Because we understand for America to continue to remain unique and great for future generations, it takes the investment of American citizens, like those who have gone before us, like you and like me." - Sharon Hughes
