Mar 17, 1970

Bob's "Irish Roots"

God must have intended me to be Irish.  I have always felt a special affinity to the Irish people.  I don't know why.  I just did.

Also, I arrived in North America from Europe on March 17, 1970 - St. Patrick's Day.  I was clueless about what the day meant.  But I learned quickly. And I have been celebrating St. Patrick's Day ever since.  Again, I don't know why.  I just did.  It felt good.    Forty years later, I was still celebrating it as my Irish and American birthday. 

Check out the rest of my Irish experiences...
