Scandinavia, My Heritage

I am 75% Swedish and 25% Norwegian from four grandparents. Both grandfathers changed their last names when they came to America. Some of my relatives have traced our background and been to Sweden and Norway. I just go to Ikea and collect Swedish stuff to pass on one day.

I am so grateful that my grandparents came to the United States; yet I am concerned where we are going as a nation. It's not just the financial picture, grim as it is. I wonder will we become so PLURALISTIC that nothing counts, not even our Christian heritage?
