A male candidate for Michigan’s 3rd Congressional District once said the US suffered from women’s suffrage and praised an organization trying to repeal the 19th Amendment. Of course he denies that is his current belief, but you might guess which side of the great divide he is still on. But we can still vote, so […]WE WOMEN CAN STILL VOTE — NANMYKEL.COM

Knowing ourselves is the greatest revelation. When we know ourselves we can surmount every obstacle that is thrown in our way. We have to listen to the whisperings of our eternal spirit. It is in the spiritual realm that all things are made possible.

Most of this generation of Italian immigrants took their first steps on U.S. soil in a place that has now become a legend—Ellis Island. In the 1880s, they numbered 300,000; in the 1890s, 600,000; in the decade after that, more than two million. By 1920, when immigration began to taper off, more than 4 million Italians had come to the United States, and represented more than 10 percent of the nation’s foreign-born population.
What brought about this dramatic surge in immigration? The causes are complex, and each hopeful individual or family no doubt had a unique story. By the late 19th century, the peninsula of Italy had finally been brought under one flag, but the land and the people were by no means unified. Decades of internal strife had left a legacy of violence, social chaos, and widespread poverty. The peasants in the primarily poor, mostly rural south of Italy and on the island of Sicily had little hope of improving their lot. Diseases and natural disasters swept through the new nation, but its fledgling government was in no condition to bring aid to the people. As transatlantic transportation became more affordable, and as word of American prosperity came via returning immigrants and U.S. recruiters, Italians found it increasingly difficult to resist the call of “L’America”.
