Remember Your Past

In the midst of the immigration debate it serves us well to remember the difficulties of our individual heritage.Part of my family during the Irish immigration period endured blatant discrimination actually facing signs on factories that stated”Irish need not apply”.The route for the Italian side of my family experienced equal blatant discrimination being closed out because they were”Wops”.Many of us have never felt the sting of such bias, and in the debate regardless of our political beliefs these memories behoove us to remember that we are discussing the lives of Mothers ,Fathers and children.If we conjure images of our loved ones who paved the way for us years ago, I believe it will enable us to deal with this complex issue in a fair and decent manner.
