      Vivat 4th of July America !

      I am Dumitru Gheorghian from Romania, American citizen.

      The most important holiday of our world it's 4th of July. That it's like a

      Holy Day not only for Americans people.

      Democracy as an ideal was defined in Athens by Greeks over 2 thousands years ago.America evolution deserve great respect for the

      first experiment of democrasy and then followed as a model for the whole world.

      During the second war, as a child, I heard about America first time.

      At any cross, people was using to say, Americans are coming to liberate Romania and overcome to install communism by wild soviet

      army.Communism was not at all welcome. Synthetically, the best is

      expressed by less than 1000 communists, and from that about 900

      were not true Romanians! In my school beginning classes I yelled

      many times, Americans are coming. Two times teachers heard me

      and punished me, kicked back me. That was my dream in school, university, my engineering work, without coming Americans.

      As an engineer specialist I was happy to be selected and conduct

      many telecommunications specialist workers in Algeria and Greeks.

      From Greeks I was accepted by America in 1983.

      I was very happy to start my working and I appreciated the technique

      ,organisations and managements a lot.

      By 1984, I observed how American technology was transfered outside for higher profit and Americans people was losing their jobs.

      For that I was very happy and satisfied in the last time when I read and heard, America First ! Was very normal.

      For the Great 4th of July, Americans Independent Day, it's an excellent occasion to Remember that Romania will celebrate 100 years on Dec 1, 2018 since Transilvania genetically unified to Romania. That great and correct act was possible only with the

      intervention act in American Congress in 1918(14 Points) by the great President Woodrow Wilson.

      I hope, in this centenary year, as a gratitude, a statue in Bucharest

      for President Woodrow Wilson will be installed.

      I hope and wish never, ever communism in America.

      A Very Happy American Independence!

      Dumitru Gheorghian
