My mother’s family emigrated from Germany in the 1700’s, from Ireland in the 1800’s, landing in Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly Love.
My father’s family were among those “huddled masses” of the early 1900’s, escaping eastern Europe for a better life.
They were drawn by the promise of work in the steel mills and farmlands of rural Pennsylvania.
I am the child of immigrants.
We all are.
Important to remember that.
