One hundred years past, in the 1920’s and `930’s, we can assess what has happened to America over time. Two decades that were among the most eventful in the history of America show our progress and our need to continue to learn from the past and improve the future.. The aftermath of a world war, a global economic melt down, and the preparation for yet another war affected individual families as well as the nation. Through it all, democracy was tested. The definition of “people” is a case in point. That definition has expanded through amendments to the Constitution to specifically include black Americans freed from slavery, and women. It was not an easy struggle then, nor is it now. This story follows the path of four generations of a family who first saw America as a haven for immigrants and then contributed to their own growth, and the country’s, as citizens and patriots.The family in this story share a German heritage that is slow to be forgotten. Within the family, it is not ethnicity that is most important, it is the need to determine the right individual path through life that each one is searching to find. And every man, woman, and child is different: even in the same family setting. And the folks in this tale have differences of race, gender, ethnicity, vales, income, and talent. It is a melting pot.The Constitution of the United States of America continues to provide a strong foundation for government .despite the different circumstances and scientific/technological advances. The interpretation of our Constitution varies but the bedrock is still the worth of each person. There is no “other” to be discriminated against, we are all equal. It is not the sameness of Americans that make this a great country, it is our acceptance of diversity. Difficult as it is within a family, it is more difficult within national borders. The story continues.
