Active Shooter

When your parents and son are hiding from an active shooter, it really makes you think about life and what it all means!

Greek Easter

Although many of us in the United States celebrated Easter in March this year, this Sunday is the Greek Easter for many of my family members. The differences are very interesting. Check out this chapter of my book!

No Obamacare

My Aunt Carolyn would still be alive today if she had the choice of health insurance through the Healthcare Marketplace that was created through the American Healthcare Act, nicknamed Obamacare. Read about how the program could have helped her and how it is helping millions of people now.

Love and Fate

If you believe in love, it will happen in so many ways!

Who Are We?

Since the concept of the United States was formed, we have been a nation of immigrants. When did people start to hate immigrants? Why when we all come from immigrants? So strange!

The Shoe Shine

Growing up in a small town as part of only one of two Greek families was difficult sometimes but also, very enlightening and educational.

Groups Targeted Immigrants and Still Do

It is disheartening to think of what immigrants went through when coming to the US in the early 1900s but even more disheartening that it is still happening today. Uncle Pete being hunted by the KKK is chilling and so awful.

Making Sense of Chaos

When there is chaos and your family is being threatened, you do whatever you can to stay calm, even reading a book about your grandmother's life.

Death and a New Beginning

It is never easy to lose someone close to you, whether they were a great person or an abusive one. Either way, with death comes grief, but also, new beginnings.

The Ring

Such a generous gift for a mother from her children and then it is lost.....

From Making Hose to Making Gyros

Downsizing inflicts profound pain on employees. Job losses erode trust, diminish morale, and breed insecurity. Families suffer, communities reel, and corporate cultures are irreparably damaged. The human cost is immense but my dad was able to turn it around when he lost his job to downsizing.

The Reality of Immigration

Immigration is not as easy as some people may think it is. Many parents have to make difficult and heartbreaking decisions to ultimately give their children better lives.

The Robbery

You never know who you can really trust, even when it comes to friends. My daughter learned that lesson the hard way when she was still in high school......

From Immigrant to Citizen is not easy

My dad studied and waited for years to be able to take his American citizenship test. The test is not as easy as many people think it is and to pass it, you need to know a ton of info about the history and current laws of the United States. What types of questions are on the test? Find out in this chapter of Never Break the Chain: Immigration and the American Dream.

A Mother's Worst Nightmare

Both of my grandmothers lost a child, sons. I can't imagine the pain and anguish they must have felt. Both were preventable deaths in today's world but back then, it was all too common, and sad, just so heartbreaking.

Immigration is not a simple choice

Many people in the United States are under the impression that people from other countries are coming here to take their jobs and do harm to others. This is not the case. In my Grandma Greek's own words, she describes what it really feels like to leave the only home she has ever known to move to a country she has never even visited. The United States is a nation of immigrants which means most of us would not be here if our ancestors had not immigrated.

Never Break the Chain

When your parents and son are hiding from an active mass shooter in Las Vegas, it really puts into perspective just how much our families mean to us. For me, it made me realize the importance of the history of our families and how much we can learn from the struggles our ancestors overcame. Knowing where we come from can give us the courage to overcome life's obstacles and can motivate us to do better in the future.
