Happy July 4th! As part of the Literacy Council of Northern Virginia’s curriculum, LCNV learners receive classroom instruction about the history of the United States of America. In her essay, LCNV learner Patricia reflects on America’s education system, holidays and festivities, and citizens. Celebrate Independence Day with Patricia’s words, below:

“I had visited the United States on two occasions as a tourist, years after my husband agree to make a living in this country, when we took this step, we were informed what our rights and obligations would be, which we are trying to accomplish each and every day.

America has many things that I like, such as:

Education. The education and different programs are offered to young students so they can be productive young people, free school transportation, sports. And the easy use of technology where we get to know the grades of students, the counseling students get to know classes to take. Also can help them have a better chance of getting a good college and the young who are not sure what to study.

The holidays, knowing the different days of festivities celebrating this country, which allows us to celebrate with family and adopt new traditions, because I enjoy the easy off on holidays. Different visited parks, monuments with the family and my favorite holidays are July 4th, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.

People. I have had the opportunity to work with very special people in this country who have made me feel part of their family. I thank God for giving me this opportunity to live in this country.”
