Hey, my name is Jose! That was the primary English sentence I realized when I initially went to the United States of America from Honduras, a Five-Star nation situated in Latin America. I recall exceptionally cleared being on the Airplane flight, attempting to learn English by perusing my English-learning book named “Ingles Sin Barreras.” It is learning material for Hispanics to learn English with a suitable strategy, a technique that was advantageous to use at home and simple to appreciate. “Greetings, my name is____” and I occupied out the clear space with “Jos”. I needed to express this sentence to the individual sitting close to me on the plane… However, I felt unreliable, not certain that I would talk unmistakably. I feared that individual’s response to my absence of English capability.

I set up a great deal of cynicism in my psyche and mental obstructions by saying to myself: What if this individual overlooks me? Imagine a scenario where this individual doesn’t get me. At that point, I said to myself: The answer for this is practice. I chose to rehearse “Hello, my name is Jos” again and again; it might appear to be easy to you, yet on the off chance that you’ve had a go at learning an unknown dialect, you may value the trouble of beginnings.When I saw that the Airplane was going to show up at the LAX International Airport, realizing that I had been rehearsing in my brain my first English sentence, I assembled the BOLD COMMITMENT to at long last say to the individual sitting close to me: Hi, my name is Jos!.

Today, Monday, February 08, 2010, I am regarded and lowered to partake in The Transit TV Essay Contest to expound on the U.S. President that I feel has had the best effect on the nation, and that turns out to be as per my perspective one of The Two America’s Finest Presidents, alongside Abraham Lincoln, in view of his BOLD COMMITMENT to make harmony in the United States of America and the world. I am composing this article with my restricted English, however the most significant thing is that in all seriousness.

_ was conceived on May 29, 1917 in Brookline, Massachusetts. His wellbeing during his youth right to his adulthood was rarely well, yet his affection for America and the world propped him up to stay faithful to America’s Commitment alive. America’s Promise is profoundly established in The American Dream that began in 1776 when The Founding Fathers composed the Declaration of Independence that drove the Thirteen Colonies pronouncing freedom from Britain. To be more explicit and clear, The America’s Promise is written in the Constitution of the United States of America however it is should have been acknowledged overall since it is starting today Monday, February 8, 2010 the world’s most impressive guarantee in mankind’s set of experiences since it ensured effectively Life, Liberty, and The Pursuit of Happiness for all, which incorporates everyone from varying backgrounds paying little mind to an individual’s sex, race, political perspectives, identity, religion, sexual direction, nationality, shade of skin, financial status, handicap, and whatever other paltry distinction. We are each of the one time frame as E-Pluribus Unum speaks to in Latin that out of many, we are one as per God.

Indeed In God We Trust that we all together. _ comprehended that he expected to conquer all hindrances even his own wellbeing and prosperity to stand up and put forth a valiant effort to satisfy on The America’s Promise with his BOLD COMMITMENT characterizing America The Beautiful. America! America! God shed his beauty on thee and made _ a world legend that even propelled me as a soccer player filling in Honduras, a 5-Star nation where I was respected by many including guardians and individuals of various ages that they gave me the desire sought to be one day the main dark President of Honduras for my BOLD COMMITMENT that I gained from him.

_ endured the best medical issue consistently including Malaria, Addison’s infection, and persistent back agony yet his BOLD COMMITMENT kept him firm and faithful to America by serving in the U.S. Military upon his undergrad vocation at Harvard College where he pursued for practically all games varsity groups yet procured a spot on the varsity swimming club and dwelled in John Winthrop House from his sophomore year until his graduation. He originally needed to present with honor in the U.S. Armed force yet he was dismissed because of his torment in his back. He didn’t surrender in serving in the U.S. Military and afterward he was at last acknowledged in the U.S. Naval force during World War II. America respects the individuals who serve her with most profound love and dedication.

_ roused me to adore America so much that in the event that anything happen to her I will ensure her with my entire being. I remember during the 9/11 Terror Attack, I was in Tegucilpalpa, Honduras concentrating in the National University of Honduras [Universidad National Automona de Honduras (UNAH)] as the most youthful understudy in the wake of being moved on from High School as one of the country’s best distinctions understudies and chose to play for the Honduras National Soccer Team under 17. That 9/11 News was scared for me that I concluded effectively to serve in the U.S. Armed force to secure America The Beautiful. Out the unexpected, the U.S. Consulate in Honduras allowed my family a U.S. Perpetual Residency supported by my auntie, Maria Asteria Manaiza, to go to the U.S. Gaining from the exercises from my granddad Jos Hipolito Centeno with Pen Name as Santos Centeno, who a recognized writer of a progression of Civil Rights Books and history of Blacks in Latin America, I discovered that _ effectively imagined with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 preceding he was killed on November 22, 1963 in Dallas, Texas. That is the momentous commitment that _ has made for my family that were liable to such a great amount of segregation in Honduras that they expected to come to America satisfy on The American Dream to have a superior life for their families.

_ enlivened me to have a BOLD COMMITMENT to learn English utilizing my library card to go the public library in South Central Los Angeles and study with my entire existence the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) to enroll in the U.S. Armed force and I recollect that with such quietude my English was improving and better conversing with my dearest neighbors in South Central Los Angeles and making my mom pleased while setting an incredible models for my two more youthful siblings. I came to America in August of 2002 with my purpose to serve in the U.S. Armed force as a U.S. Armed force Ranger to deal with those answerable for 9/11. I left everything in my nation Honduras simply come to secure America The Beautiful. Despite the fact that I passed the ASVAB subsequent to being in America for just three months, breeze through the physical assessment, clinical test, I was not qualified because of my English. I never surrendered that I continued learning English at Los Angeles Southwest College and with my affection for America I had the option to win a 4.0 GPA in the entirety of my classes and my Mathematics that I was welcome to Harvard University for a the Harvard Summer School with the goal to visit and check whether I could join to the Harvard Men’s Soccer Team.

I recall that I decide to live in John Winthrop House where _ used to live as a Harvard undergrad understudy and in reality I invested a large portion of my energy in recollecting that him in his honor concentrating in the structure named after him _ School of Government despite the fact that my courses where in Harvard Northwest Science Building taking my Mathematics courses. Nonetheless, my heart was and consistently been to come to UCLA in light of the fact that that is my fantasy school since I was a long term old soccer player. I kept in touch with Ms. Oprah Winfrey that the impact of The Civil Rights Act of 1964 is so effective and persuasive in TV that “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air” alongside “The Bill Cosby Show” was our family’s #1 TV sitcom show since they were the main ones where individuals of color were not assuming cliché jobs. My two more youthful siblings, Jesse (named out of appreciation for Reverend Jesse Jackson) and Luther (named to pay tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., used to battle with me for Ashley Banks (character played by Tatyana Ali), and Jesse used to state:

“Ashley es mi novia.”

Luego Luther deca, “No, Ashley es mi novia.”

Luego yo deca, “No, Ashley es mi novia-punto.”

Luego Jesse y Luther estaban diciendo al mismo tiempo, “No, Ashley es mi novia, Jose Angel.

“Bueno entonces ustedes se quedan con Ashley y mi nueva novia es Hilary Banks (Karyn Parsons), porque ella va a UCLA.”

Interpreted, we’d banter:

“Ashley is my sweetheart.”

At that point Luther reacted, “No, Ashley is my sweetheart, Jesse.”
