Good one, I remember that! (As it happened Australia voted overwhelmingly in favour of gay marriage.)

Actually, if we are not Native Americans, [those folks we used to call "Indians"] ALL OF US are either
immigrants or descendants of immigrants..............um........

Not really! You are leaving out the usurpation of Native lands and the attempted genocide of those Natives. That is NOT legal immigration.

I almost passed this by, but so glad I was so curious.
Everyone in America and Canada hails from immigrants, without immigrants there would be know America or Canada.
Thank you for this wonderful sharing of your intimate thought.

I am another that almost scrolled passed this one, but I am glad that I didn't! I totally agree! I might be a little bias tho………… my grandfather was an English immigrant, and my husband was a German immigrant.

Yes ma’am. I’m grateful for the last 30 years. I so appreciate it when a guest or new acquaintance grabs my wrist and says, No, try this!
