A resonant story that evokes memories of similar stories told by my mother and her siblings -- all of whom came here from Bessarabian Russia and all of whom overcame astonishing odds to "make it" in the Goldena Medina -- the Golden Land. These are the stories that must be told -- over and over again -- when today's young people ask "What's so exceptional about America?" One story like this -- if it sinks in -- is worth a thousand political-science lectures.
