"They learned, or at least their children learned, to read and speak English. They didn't demonstrate to have ballots printed in their native language. They didn't harangue the school board about having classes talk in their mother tongue." - JLC


I wish my parents had taught us to speak German. They talked German with each other but switched to English when we were around. They wanted us to be 100% American. We were all born during and right after WWII and there was a lot of anti-German sentiment so they didn't want us be thought of as German. I was still sometimes called "Nazi" by some kids when I was growing up.
