O Canada, our home, our paradise. This land we call home has taken us in with open arms and given us the wings we needed to fly high. Any immigrant will vouch for this. We left our home land for many reasons and walked into this country without the language or knowledge of how to survive. This country that I call home now, gave me everything. It gave me freedom, it gave me education and it gave me a great community. I am who I am because of what Canada has done for me. I hold my head high and proudly say that I am Canadian. Pride and joy fills my heart to know that I belong to this wonderful country. I am a Canadian citizen and I love my country. Happy Birthday Canada! To many years more.
