I find the story of the immigrants fascinating. Over the years I visited Ellis
Island several times and it has something to it.

I always wondered what it must be like for people to leave their home turf
fully understanding it was for 'forever' in those days. 'Good-bye grandpa
grandma, I'll see you in the afterlife'...

The same feelings I have when visiting County Donegal in Ireland and you pass
completely abandoned 18th and 19th century settlements.
