    This abrupt change in tone contradicts everything that has come before. Are you sure about that line?

    Almost five years ago, on June 3, 1999 me and my parents left Italy and came to the United States. I recall that day as the saddest one of my life.

    I changed it from and came to to come because you put the focus on leaving, so I thought that was appropriate.

    What do you think?
