Instead of putting up walls, we should be tearing them down
Posted November 15th, 2019
I must be sincere, in these past weeks I have received praise & many a compliment for my sincerity & this has made me extremely happy.
At times, I still run upon comments claiming, "Heather Parisi is always causing trouble & biting the hand that fed her" and, I just don't get it.
"Other" colleagues can say whatever they please (maybe because they are Italian?!) without reason, but me, no; I am not allowed (maybe because I am NOT Italian?!).
I lived for 30 years in Italy, I married an Italian and, all of my children are not only American but, are Italian as well. I don't need to demonstrate my love for this country.
But I will forever be a Citizen of the World and I love everywhere I go.
Instead of putting up walls, we should be tearing them down,
instead of looking to see why we are so different, we should be looking to see what we have in common.
