Ah, but you do carry the remembrance of it to this day!
Our most recent gun point evictions date back to my parent's time, on  
both sides of the family.
But as you say, the work is here, and my own children are also born  
In a few weeks we're having a family member coming for a visit. I  
want my daughters to see the tattooed number on her forearm before  
she passes away. In an unfortunate way, this will bind them to the  
family history as a reality and not as an abstraction. While I deeply  
regret them the experience, it's  unavoidable.
