    Summary

    When I was much younger, my grandfather, and namesake, would take me to Liberty Island. He’d buy us some ice cream and talk about how he left his country to escape the first world war, with my grandmother pregnant with my mother. To Thea, he was a hero. To me, he was the cool guy who bought me ice cream and showed me magic tricks and put my on his strong and broad shoulders at the top of the statue to look out at the ships going by. I hoped another blond-haired, plucky little kid like me was on his grandfather's shoulder, pointing and waving at our boat.

    For good measure, I wave back.

    -Inspired by Goodnight Saigon by Billy Joel-
