I made this drink tonight to honour the Czech heritage of the American that’s significant in my life. Like my wish for Americans at this time, this American changed my life for the better as well. His great grandfather left Prague in the early 1900’s, to seek out a better life in that mythical country that was far from anything he knew. A land of opportunity that welcomed anyone.
Moving to Chicago, he did indeed, make ‘something of himself’. Through hard work and diligence he built a new life for himself, and the girl he had eloped with from his old life, selling milk on the Charles Bridge.
Let’s get back to that place, where the battlers in life are rewarded, for their honorable work, and people can again hold their head up proudly.
