I wanted a new start. I wanted to turn over a new leaf some may say. So here is how it began... The ship was terrible with stinky people that were not that nice. But it was all worth it when I saw that statue. Beautiful and blue that statue of liberty, I even cried when I saw it. In fact, my whole family cried when we saw it. So maybe our Ellis island adventure wasn't the best. We had to stay there for 1 month due to my illness, I had lung problems. They put a P on my shirt, I saw other people with markings like E, H, N, etc. After being in quarantine my family and I decided to grab our luggage and move to a small village in Illinois called Evergreen Park. It is peaceful and there is un-smelly, kind people. Now I'm a author, and I am writing a book called My Trip From Lithuania To U.S. I start with this: "I wanted a new start. I wanted to turn over a new leaf some may say..."
