Coming to America as a child I lived in what used to be a lively German neighborhood in Chicago, where shops, restaurants, radio stations, newspapers and groceries all operated in the German language. I learned about my heritage from aunts and uncles proud of their ancestor's contribution to their adopted country. It made them and us feel a real part of America and that we had a lot to offer too. I loved learning how much I had in common with my famous Senator cousin, 100 years apart!Description
