About Me: We moved to US when I was 14, very awkward age. My father, mother and I didn't even speak English then. We left Odessa (Ukraine) in 1975 and never had an opportunity to come back. My immediate and extended family is very diverse and represents many nationalities that comprise the patchwork of languages, cultures and religions of America. My children, true blue Americans, are half Ukrainian and half Persian with no religious affilliation, although I was born Jewish and my husband was born Muslim. Both of us are secularists and taught our kids about all three major religions so that some day they themselves can make their own choice if they so desire. We are first and foremost Americans and love our country. We don't hyphenate ourselves as Iranian-American or Ukrainian/Jewish-American. I always belived that Jamaica's motto "Out of many, one people" should have been adopted by Americans.
