I spent the day (March 17) telling people about this wonderful anniversary.
I told those of Italian heritage and others. I even told a woman who emigrated to U.S. at the age of 14 and still communicates with family back in Italy. Not one person knew anything about this great event. I informed the vice president of the Italian club where I am a member and he announced it last night at our St. Patrick's day dinner dance. It received a nice response particularly from the Italians who still have roots in Italy.
I am curious. Was this a big event in the homeland? Or, was it just another day that was marked on the calendar.
