you mean my situation, not Gerald's. you really need to pay more attention..
as to being cast adrift, my reference to clan had more to do with
ethnicity than to family.
no one in my family feels cast adrift. we all belong to our family,
and all feel we're americans - and all that that entails. We have
our traditions and we have our familial bonds.

Grandchildren no longer even know where their grandparents are buried,
let alone where and how the ancestors lived. Gerald's situation is all
too common and, in my opinion, one of he major contributing factors to a
nation filled with lots and lots of children that feel cast adrift.

Why are the people who live across the border from Brownsville, TX not
as American as those who live in Brownsville? Consider that those of
us who are Eastern effetes as probably as different from you as the
Mexicans are... Or from my perspective, you people who have never
butchered your own food as more different from me than the Mexicans
who do so...
