Where else but America can the great-grandson of a slave grow up in the streets of Detroit and become a college president? Where else but America can my son and daughter have the possibilities of having an abundant life through a strong faith in God, a great education, and all of the tenets associated with a very basic concept called freedom? You cannot achieve these things in Russia, China, or Syria.

But I can’t breathe. []
