FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — Eleven-year-old Abe Benkhaled presented Forsyth County Board of Commissioners with copies of his book “The Greatest Country.”

Before presenting his book on April 4, Abe addressed the board and shared his thoughts on what makes the U.S. the greatest country.

“Our country and our flag are the ultimate symbols of success, freedom, generosity, creativity and greatness,” Abe said. “I feel proud that in this country I can be everything and anything I want to be.”

Abe, a sixth-grade student at Piney Grove Middle School, co-wrote the book with his father, B.K. Bhutta.
