The Lesson in the Back of a Bible

Tony Messenger writes for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.  Today he told a story about immigration, in his own family and more recently.  He (and his source) also told me something I did not know — that of the twenty largest metro areas in the nation, St. Louis had the largest increase in foreign-born residents from 2014 to 2015.  Second was Minneapolis-St. Paul.

And here’s the lesson he found, in his annual flip-through of the pages in his mom’s old Bible….

“Until after my mom died, I never thought much about my immigrant past.  I was a typical American mutt,….  But we all come from somewhere.”

It’s a quick read; you’ll enjoy it!
