Always My Hometown

I was born in DC at Providence Hospital and lived in DC until my parents moved the family to the suburbs. My Dad,a child of immigrants, grew up on Capitol Hill and used to call the Capitol grounds his playground. His father was a shoemaker ((Congressional Shoe Repair) , and my Dad would deliver repaired shoes to the members of Congress in the Capitol. If he were alive today, he would have been devastated, as we all were, to see his beloved city and the Capitol under siege. Although I now call Annapolis home, DC will always be my hometown.
