An American Story

Some years ago my ancestors made to America. They didn't arrive all at once and they didn't all take the same path to get here. Some, it seems, were forced out of France because they were Huguenots. Others were Mormom converts and ended up pushing hand carts across the prairie to Utah. Others, were part of the great Scots-Irish movement. Some fought in the American Revolution (I remember my grandmother's DAR pin), some in the Civil War, WWI and WWII and some in other fights along the way. In this life, some prospered, some didn't. In short, a typical American story.

This morning I read another American's story which is worth sharing. Visit "Jew in America" at the site of Attila -the wrongly named "Pillage Idiot." Read it.

And when you have finished, join us in saying,"Thank you, God, for having made me an American."
