Puberty Upper body of a teenage boy. The structure has changed to resemble an adult form. Puberty is a period of several years in which rapid physical growth and psychological changes occur, culminating in sexual maturity. The average age of onset of puberty is at 11 for girls and 12 for boys.
As an immigrant, as the The stereotyping of teenagers today of an immigrant, and as a US Army Veteran with four brothers who each served our adopted country honorably — 2 Army, 2 Marine — and from far away Sweden on a visit, but not seeking asylumI could not help but admire and be proud of America and the hundreds of thousands across our great country who showed solidarity against the ban on Muslims and immigrants entering the United States.
But the protesters comprise an America I knew as a boy in high school — welcoming; the America I knew working after school in a Greek restaurant — welcoming. In high school, when Mrs. Goldman chose to stay after school to help me with extra classes in English, this America was welcoming.
Ed Burns, the funeral home owner who gave me my first full time job out of the Army. Or my fellow steel mill workers at Inland Steel, who are welcoming. Only in America can such acts of kindness take place. This is America, where I have life long friends from high school and the Army — welcoming.
America is a welcoming country, and President Trump with his executive orders will never change the nature of America or who we are as Americans.
One can only appreciate America and what it stands for in that moment when new immigrants passing their citizenship stand up and give loyalty to America, our adopted country. These are the new citizens from Europe, from Southeast Asia, from the Middle East, North Africa, Africa and Latin America — diverse in color, faith and ethnic origin but united in our loyalty to our adopted country.
And who can doubt that? Here in Sweden, I am so proud when I speak with Swedes and talk about the demonstrations at major airports across the country. Let us also remember those businesses and banks that failed to speak up in support of the free immigration to America.
If we can vote politicians in with our votes, I am sure we can make our money vote for us too. I am not so proud of the hundreds of members of the House and Senate who chose to remain silent in the face of this shameful act.
In Novemberwe will hope that those who spoke against the executive order will remember which members of Congress chose to be silent.
Of course, we all remember the shameful time in our history when Jewish refugees escaping Nazi Germany were denied entry to the US. We are not so proud of the internment of Japanese Americans during WWII — made more shameful because the most liberal Supreme Court justices supported their interment.
But then America is free, proud, home of the brave; and we will make sure that this administration and the administrations to come live up to the ideals that make America who we are, a welcoming country. My proposal for all the immigrant professionals, especially doctors and lawyers, is that it is time to step up to the plate and show in real service our commitment to this country and its people.
With tens of thousands of medical doctors from immigrant backgrounds, the best thing we can do is to organize nationwide free medical clinics, not only serving urban poor but serving rural Whites — and show them our appreciation, not by words, but by deeds.
I am sure those who incite and promote Islamophobia and anti-immigration sentiment would be surprised at our contribution to our adopted country. In the coming weeks, and following the recently set up free medical clinics by Muslim doctors in Orlando, I will be contacting all medical associations to organize and set up these free medical clinics all across America, as a token of our appreciation.

Photo: But lots of research shows that the stereotypes of all groups are much more overdrawn than the reality. I worry about stereotyping entire generations of people, which by definition are incredibly large and heterogeneous groups of.
