You're right...coming as an immigrant to America is the best think that can happen to anyone. You're rewarded. My husband had family here and they were our sponsors and responsible for us. No government help and you work very hard.<quoted text>
I hear you.
My great grandparents came here from Ireland. They went through Ellis Island--both sets, then my grandparents had 10 children when there were no food stamps, medicaid, welfare or section 8. Both of them worked hard, they had to or they would have all starved to death. Somewhere along the line, my family mixed with the American Indians and decades later, here I am with Indian and Irish features.
I lived with my grandparents for a few years on the farm and omg, this work is very hard especially when its not modernized.
I know what you feel, your post indicate the character you have and that this character was earned.
Thank GOD for people like you and my grandparents....they show us what earning your own living is all about.
I worked and compete with men in machine shop and I was not embarrassed. I had small children, worked day time and went to school at night...
That's why I don't let anyone push me around or intimidate me. I know what hard work is all about. I know who I'm and this is my home...!!
Irish huh...nice people ...love their music, especially Michael Flatley...Lord of the dance...!!
