Cause and effect, no one lives without affecting another. Neither through thought or action, is our journey ours alone.
Foreseen in a premonition, two hearts that began beating thousands of miles apart from one another eventually became one. Both their worlds enduring different yet similar hardships, though the desired outcome the same. Together, their worlds shined out from their very souls through love and a God they trusted inside themselves and each other, till death do they part, uniting to bear children and to brighten a path for America and for all to see a much better day. United they and others like them stood together, for divided, they knew they would fall.
My sweet mother, as a tiny girl in the Philippines, singing “God Bless America” during joyful moments as she dreamed of what it must be like. A glorious land of people just like her grandfather came back to save her country from the grips of evil once again. It was her grandfather who would one day come back to heal the forgotten pain deep within her heart.
Brought up in beauty, she was not fleeing when deciding to leave with my father that exciting day on November of 1955. She was sailing towards the calling of her very own life. The life that had been given to her only, and that would one day make our country whole again.
It’s really the making of a new America which began in the 1930’s. Just coming out of the depths of hell; WWI, WWII, and the Great Depression, America persevered through a simple and pure way of life, full of strength, commons sense, purpose and clarity, and most of all, love and commitment. Enduring great suffering, our elders provided a better way of life for their children, for many years to come. by Angela Arden COMING SOON!
