Where America’s Day Begins
Is one I naturally hold dear to my heart.
Growing up on the island
Has made me appreciate
Our beautiful taotao*, tano*, yan tåsi*
It has made me value my Chamorro culture
Filled with family gatherings
Filled with beautiful songs to sing and enjoy
Filled with a rich history
Filled with strong traditions
But most of all,
filled with memories to last a lifetime.
