More colors more stories more gratitude

mebwPenny Shaff Altman,
Portland, ME.

My father told me stories drawn from his childhood in the Ukraine. My mother told me stories about her life growing up as a Jewish immigrant. I told stories to my children. I tell them to my grandchildren. My youngest grandson’s great grandmother is famous for her stories of Gullah Gitchee and West African heritage and the history of her island. We are richer for being part of different stories.
If we share the same stories and mix our colors, we will be one.
