Happy First Line Friday!
This week I am sharing a line from a book that I am really hoping I will love, because I really kind of love the subject of the book A LOT. I am not Catholic, but I absolutely adore Pope Francis. I love his message and his position on so many social issues, and we are so lucky to have him in our world. At my imaginary dinner party, he would be seated between Eleanor of Aquitaine and Bernie Sanders, across from William Marshal and Dan Jones. Can you even begin to imagine these conversations?? It would be the best dinner party ever.
"Many of us who have an interest IN our families' immigrant pasts have visited the port or THE town where our forebears arrived, lived, and struggled. We try to imagine the day of their arrival, the weather, the smell, the crowds, the anxiety. I have wandered the streets of Boston looking at the same sights my Irish maternal relatives must have seen; I have wondered what they must have felt when they read signs that said 'IRISH NEED NOT APPLY'."
Let me know what you think and/or leave a line of your own. Then, visit my fellow First-Liners to see what they have waiting for you this week.
