An Immigrant’s Son
By: Ralph Calabrese
About the Book / Author
An Immigrant’s Son tells the story of an immigrant who taught his son about pride and patriotism. The son, due to the examples set by the father, fostered a love for God and country. The father was very proud when his sons entered the military. He told them, “This is your country. If you don’t love it and fight for it, do not expect anyone else to.”
Calabrese’s father loved this country so much, he inspired Calabrese to write the following poem.
My Hero, My Dad
Came from across the sea
From a country in Europe called Italy
He came to America where he could be free
And raise a family with many opportunities
So lift your glass and give a toast
To a great America my hero my dad.
