11/6/2018 Boston’s North End — Did you know that the U S of A and I have the same birthplace? (ok some of you will contest the accuracy there but go for it, haha). I’m writing this from the tiny lil neighborhood my Sicilian ancestors immigrated to 100 years ago. I’m blocks from my where my great grand parents got married, as well as where my grandfather was born. So it’s fitting that on this Election Day 2018 to celebrate my #vote with a cannoli. The convergence of my European heritage and my American pride. My ancestors came here for a better life and for the ideals and many beautiful facets of “freedom” – how could I not vote? Regardless of who’s in the White House I am proud to be an American. #thankyou to all my immigrant ancestors who envisioned a better life for us generations later. Let’s protect this beautiful country. Let’s vote. Proud to be 🇺🇸🇮🇹🇨🇦🇬🇧🇵🇱🇷🇺
