Remembering an American Dreamer

Such pictures represent my only memories of my grandfather.

A man who followed the “American Dream” from mayor of a small town in what is now Slovenia to Bethlehem Steel and the opportunities it offered to him and his family.

If it weren’t for the Steel and my grandfather’s desire for a better life where would I be?
Would I even be?
Looking at this picture I am grateful for the courage my grandfather had and the opportunities the Steel gave to those who had the courage to grab their future.
