The country is pretty divided now over a lot of problems, but I wanted to share a story about how America is truly the greatest country in the world. It is a land that still offers dreams and hope to those who previously had none. Every one of us may get all wrapped up in political drama, in addition to complications our society faces, but I hope at the end of the day we can all realize this is an amazing place to live. I am an immigrant, and I moved here more than nine years ago to give a better life to our family. I started teaching myself HVAC system repair when I was back in the old country, using the internet and any heating and cooling repair textbooks I could find. I had not yet ever touched a real air conditioner, I had only dealt with furnaces before and never with a central heating system. l gained so much knowledge about heating and cooling systems, it was easily simple to find an apprenticeship when I legally moved to the US. For many years I worked for a kind woman who owned an HVAC repair business, and I made no secret that one day I wanted to open up by own HVAC company. She was easily supportive of my dreams, and when she was ready to retire she offered to sell me her business, which had an established clientele. Now I am a legal citizen with our own an HVAC repair business, and it couldn’t happen anywhere but in the USA. I am very thankful for my good fortune.
