we've all got a story. just depends what we do with it.

Real Estate Agent with Homes by Nellie-Working with Buyers & Sellers

My Family is from Ukraine and Russia.  I am first generation in the US. I was born in Philadelphia shortly after my parents arrived in the U.S. 

My Dad was in concentration camps when he was a teenager.  He still hates turnips!  He  doesn't talk  much about what he remembers....just that he won't eat turnips.  I hope he will share more on his next visit....he still refuses to move to NC from NJ...cannot understand WHY!

BUT in the meantime while you're thinking of ways to get your family to move closer to where you are now...

enjoy another great song from the past....Imagine....first I heard this one was from John Lennon...great song for the night and an inspirational story ...

some days I thought I had it hard... not so much.....

Sing along.

Have fun.

Got no guarantees..........enjoy today. enjoy tonight.

We've all got a STORY.  and this one is a good one.  My family is from Russia & Ukraine; and I don't know personally the struggles they had when comint to the US.

I know a life of relative luxury.  There was always food in the refrigerator, warmth in the home, and love in the home.  So many parts of the world and the U.S. don't have the privlidge of those luxuries.

I hope that some day soon there will be no hunger, nationwide and world wide.

Nellie, O M G, that was one of the best 8.26 minutes I've ever spent!  I'm totally sharing your post and this video.  You have completely done what I hoped for with the Monday Melodies groups.  The only way our world will ever achieve peace is by getting to know each other, one of the purest ways to do that is through music and personal stories.  Thank you so much for this gift today.
