Last May I began a journey which altered my life and changed my mind. Meeting people and having the opportunity to discuss their lives, family history, hopes as well as fears which have played apart in what makes America work and sometimes not. The views express in my blog reflect my understandings of my own experiences visiting Americas towns and cities talking, listening and taking note of what was said. In this light, the good, the bad and sometimes even while eating barbecue. Let the stories begin. Oh, by the way at seventy one I’m allowed by law to have my own opinion.
