Musings: A Statement from a Construction worker

Carpe DiemDuring my current construction job, I worked with a guy named Sorin, an immigrant from Romania. A trilingual (Romanian, English, conversational Spanish) it impressed me when I learned that he had only been living in the USA for 8 years. While I was working with him, he had this to say about being an immigrant.

If you work hard and know how to exploit the opportunities that are around you, then you will succeed [in America]. 

Now I know what my family has lacked all.this.time. Exploiting the opportunities that are available here in the USA! God, I wish someone told me what Sorin ten years ago!
