The Creation of US Leadership

An orphan comes to the United States during the Mexican Revolution. She grows up but doesn't receive an education. Perhaps she doesn't succeed at achieving the American Dream by today's standards but her daughter, Rosie Castro, breaks the cycle and raises two boys who graduate from Harvard and Stanford. One is the current mayor of San Antonio, the other a Texas Congressman.
