I just wanted to share this short video about the brave young Ghanaian man, Private Emmanuel Mensah, who lost his life a few weeks ago, while saving the lives of others.
Private Mensah was staying with family when their building caught on fire. He got his family to safety, and then went back in the building to save several others before finally losing his life to the flames.
Immigrants are hardworking, brave people. They come prepared to work hard and in doing so they enrich this country and the people around them. America THRIVES when people like that come here to find their piece of the American dream, and I am embarrassed that our idiot of a president doesn’t understand that.
Private Mensah has been awarded the Soldiers medal. That is the Army’s highest award for heroism that occurs outside of combat. His citation reads “Private 1st Class Mensah’s heroic actions are in keeping with the highest traditions of military heroism and selfless service and reflect great credit upon himself, the New York Army National Guard and the United States Army.”
We are grateful for the service and bravery of this young man. Yesterday was Martin Luther King day, so I wanted to mark that day with this story.
As a contrast to that story of heroism, President Trump avoided the draft to serve his country, not once, but FIVE TIMES, one time because he had “bad feet” (bone spurs which later cured themselves).

Selfless act by Private Mensah. I think Trump has a Hitler mentality. If left to his fantansies, he would get rid of “lesser” races.

I think that immigrants bring more benefits to America than harm. but now it is beneficial for the administration of America to see harm, rather than benefit. when tomorrow the policy of the administration changes and they again need immigrants, they will remember what brave immigrants.

The truth is—the highest reward man can have is from God— He will do that for the young man—— to Trump, no matter how powerful or rich you are, sometimes it is only a “shit hole” person that can dot the ‘i’s and cut ‘t’s in your life to make you a better person. We are all human beings and we did not choose to be born black or white or…. Let peace reign.

“America is an idea, not a race,” is one of the most beautiful things I have ever heard. This is how you make America great again. Thank you for sharing this, Simon. God bless.

Hi Mr Simon,
I am from one of the banned countries from Africa. my file is still at KCC and I did not receive invitation for interview…since Trump’s order prevents us to get a visa…I would like to postpone my interview..How can I do that and when can do that? before I receive the interview invitation or after?

You just contact the embassy after it is scheduled.

Not to support the president, but I have the heel spurs on both feet. I could barely walk for two years. With time the tissue around the spurs becomes less sensitive alleviating the pain, that’s how they cure themselves. However, unless the spurs are removed surgically, an x-ray will always show them.

The condition won’t affect the medical approval UNLESS they decide you will not be able to support yourself financially.

Hi Dear Brit,,
I missed my interview appointment date as I was away from country of the interview. WhenI contacted to the embassy they told me you can request for rescheduling 24 hours after your original interview passes.
My question is: I would like to request for rescheduling when two weeks passes from my original interview date. is that safe?

I don’t know. Ask them.

I WOULD like to to know whether I should also register my wife on embassy website for interview rescheduling appointment if her status is “following to join” meaning that her interview was not scheduled at this time with me.-I am the principal applicant.

I don’t know – discuss with the embassy. The FTJ process is for AOS cases where the derivative is abroad. I hope that is your scenario.
