“Remember, remember always, that all of us, and you and I especially, are descended from immigrants and revolutionists.”
~Franklin D. Roosevelt~
My maternal grandparents were immigrants from Germany. My father was also a descendant from that country. I am of German ancestry. I have never been to the country and do not speak the language other than being able to count one to ten and say a few miscellaneous words, such as arsch.
It would have been extremely interesting to have revolutionists of another country in the family tree, but then I may not have experienced goulash, schnitzel, apple kuchen and Lenten potato pancakes.
Although I love my European heritage, I am an American – a U.S. citizen, a proponent of democracy and freedom, and proud to be a member of this country no matter its past, present or future history.
What about you, fellow descendants?
What is your country of origin or your heritage? Do you practice any of its customs, know its language, or consume mass quantities of its culture’s food? Tell me more…
