I attended a local Italian social club meeting last night, one of a number of clubs I have joined this year.  No matter where I go, or what group I am involved with, it always feels like I am with family.  It’s comforting to know that I can walk into an event and immediately share commonalities with others whose ancestors have also walked the same path, in culture, language, food, and bringing a little of the “motherland” to a new place called America a little over 100 years ago. I am grateful for my heritage today, and for those who made a way before me.

Do you feel the same about your heritage, your culture?  Feel free to share a short story about your experience…
