Emancipation of The First Generation

I think it is safe to say that immigrants to the USA are drawn by the promise of an pluralistic society and diverse culture but at the same time are afraid of losing their cultural connection to the homeland. While the burdens of the immigrant generation are heavy this contradiction and the pressures it produces are played-out by the first born generation who often must bare the cross of guilt and upholding the mother culture at the same time that they must build the bridge to a new culture. The Emancipation of The First Generation is my blog on the subject with the intention of opening it up to others to contribute their story. www.e1generation.com
