I typically steer clear of all that is political, and not because I don't get into politics. I do; however, I hold dear the ideal that everyone is entitled to their opinion, and just because their's differs from mine just makes them ignorantly wrong. No, I'm just kidding, seriously, everyone has their opinion and it was cultivated through experience amongst other things. So to them it is truth, just as mine are to me. That makes no one wrong.
But back to point of this entry, I've recently come across the National Italian American Foundation;
"a non-profit organization serving as a major advocate in Washington, DC for nearly 25 million Italian Americans, raising the prominence of all things Italian in American culture and society, and making "Italian American" part of the national conversation."
A club for Italian Americans, what a fantastic idea! The National Italian American Foundation is a group dedicated to preserving traditional Italian heritage in America. The NIAF even has a "Wine of the Month" club, and you better believe that I'm apart of this! I hope no one misunderstands this post. I believe what makes the United States great is the fact that we are a melting pot of culture, heritage, and wonderfully diverse people.
We should continue to meld and celebrate our country, while remembering and preserving our own cultures. I encourage people to join and participate. As a good friend of mine always says, "diversity isn't just a ship from the 17th century!"
Viva la Italia!
