  •  Thanks! (6+ / 0-)

    I'm just settling in Stateside after living in Frankfurt for 17.5 years. Despite never having been able to vote there, I did follow politics and get involved as much as I could.

    I can't count how many times I've said to someone outside Rewe or the train station "Ich bin Amerikaner." At some point I started saying to conservatives "Selbst wenn ich als Amerikaner wählen dürfte, würde ich rot oder grün wählen."

    Once I even demonstratively wore a KPD t-shirt on Wahltag.

    Thanks for this diary. It brings back fond memories.

    Maybe - just maybe - our foremothers and our forefathers came to this land in different ships. But we're all in the same boat now. - Rep. John Lewis
