Growing up with Dad in the Navy was ...enlightening. If we lived on one house for a year, I would announce that it was time to move.
I was born in Japan and have wonderful memories of the people there
Granddad was an Irish fireman who married a Norwegian and raised their 9 kids in Brooklyn
we've had a ton of exchange students over the years from all over the world- it has been a delight to continue to know them and see the amazing people they have become.
I think if more of us could migrate in one form or another, we'd have so much more understanding of other people and cultures- there would be so much less fear mongering and suspicion.
