Can you be Proud & Grateful at the same time? If you are a Hungarian...

I am grateful and proud to be  a Los Angeles Realtor who happens to be an American of Hungarian descent …

As a young kid I remember my father telling me ‘that Hungarians are everywhere’. I always humored him and thought that he was just exaggerating a bit, because he was a “real Hungarian” who came to this country legally but appreciated his heritage and was proud of his culture. As the years went on he kept pointing out to me Classical Musicians, Conductors, Scientist and the list goes on, what did and what they have in common? They were all Hungarians or were of Hungarian descent…

So, with that said I am a Proud American who happens to have come from Hungary.

 Interestingly the other day I was returning from Coachella, where I have a 45-acre  future Date Palm Ranch for Sale. As I am driving on the road i.e.: the 60 west the road narrows and turns into one lane for about 20 miles I am moving about five to ten miles per hour. Ahead of me I see a bright colored Cross-Country Truck. Finally, I caught up to it as the road started widening. To my surprise I saw the side of the Cab of this massive truck. The Hungarian Seal and the colors of the Hungarian flag spelling out “The Man”.  OK I am being a bit nostalgic, but the first thing I heard in my head was my father’s voice “Hungarians are everywhere” too bad it was too risky to get his attention, I would have loved to say a quick Hello to The Man😊!

I was also very grateful that a day that I spent seven plus hours on the road, I felt as if my father touched me on the shoulder and said to me: “See son, I told you Hungarians are everywhere”! BTW he is not just the Man but he is a Hungarian Man!

So, with that said keep your eyes open and you never know when you might run into a Hungarian!

Hi Endre. Your father certainly knew what he was talking about as proof from that truck's photo that you have displayed. Yes, you can be proud and grateful for your heritage.

Hi Endre,
Our country is such a melting pot, I'm sure I know some Hungarians but not even aware of it. 

Te vagy a férfi !

Hi Endre Barath, Jr. - What a cool story.  I know that road well (60). I traveled it back and forth to Palm Springs. It was closer to my home than the I-10. 

I hear you loud and clear.  I am an American first as well. If someone wants to know my ancestry I will say I am of Irish and Italian descent. I think some started putting their ancestry first because it was a way to hold onto it for some reason. My family never did this.

Good morning Endre. I find folks who came here from elsewhere are often more patriotic than those who were born here.

 Endre, ah yes you know that I am grateful and that I am an American of Hungarian descent as well. My dad was a coal miner.  I can remember my Dad saying that there were a lot of coal miners that were Hungarian.

What a heartfelt post. I think you're dad was tapping you on the shoulder. I also think many immigrants are more proud of being Americans, than those who take it for granted.

The Hungarians I know, I love so, I'd be happy if there were more here in Charlotte, Endre! 

I worked with a world renowned heart surgeon (Robiscek) here and that man was so good to me. He did quite a bit of traveling and he and his wife would always bring me something special from the countries they traveled. He had a heart of gold and I do miss him. 

Great post and I totally agree that your Dad was right there with you saying, "Remember when I said..." ❤️
