ABSTRACT
The article relates the author's experience as a Russian immigrant in the U.S. She tells about being shouted at by a woman telling her to go back to her country not knowing she was an immigrant. She felt so bad with the woman's insults and stepped out as her parents came to her rescue. The author stresses that even though they are Russians, they are exemplary as they lived the American dream, sacrificing everything they had just to come to the U.S. without leaving the principles of humanity.
