MEET AMERICA’S PATRIOTS

by BRETT ZIEGLER for U S News & World Report

They volunteer for the military. They create jobs. They help their communities. They are U.S. immigrants.

RO KHANNA LEARNED A LOT from immigrants – who just happened to be his parents. Khanna, born in Philadelphia during America’s bicentennial, is the son of Indian immigrants who came to this country to build a better life for their children. Early on, Khanna says, his parents made clear what his obligations were as a first-generation American-born citizen.

They said, “You were born in America – don’t mess it up. You won the lottery,” Khanna recalls. His parents took Khanna and his brother to Washington to see the monuments and insisted they both learn about the Constitution. Now, Khanna is a Democratic congressman from California after teaching economics at Stanford University and law at Santa Clara University, and his brother, Vikas Khanna, is an assistant U.S. attorney in New Jersey.

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events. “Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers. Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society. Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears. Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi Our Mission SheVille.org provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.
