Praise for Nina

Nina Pham and her family are shining examples of people who have achieved the American dream, immigrants who came here with nothing, who did not expect a handout from the government, who appreciated the opportunity to open a business, work hard and improve their lives.

Even in the face of the extreme adversity that Nina suffered, she did not blame anyone or complain that what happened to her was unfair. She relied on her faith in God and her medical team to see her through the ordeal, and she came through with flying colors.

These are the kind of people this country needs — people who are willing to work and achieve, people who love this country and who do not denigrate it at every opportunity — not those who expect welfare and then complain that we are not doing enough for them, and who fly the flag of their home country in parades.
