Dr. Angelou invites callers to answer the question, "What does it mean to be an American?" She speaks with the wife of a Marine, who talks about welcoming her husband home from Iraq and taking pride in his service. Then, a Puerto Rican-American talks about her happy marriage to a man from Pennsylvania and the many blessings they've experienced in their lives together, from their service in the military to having children to traveling the globe. Plus, a young woman talks about her family's journey from Bangladesh to the United States, and how she's pursuing her goals in college.
