"I Am From," By Nancy Bassett
I am from a family that is part of the history of the United States, building New England & the state of Vermont
I am from ancestors that landed on Plymouth Rock & fought in the
I am from stalwart Vermonters that drove the logs down the Connecticut River and survived
I am from a family that honors family
I had my own family that got a disease, the disease of addiction.
The addiction killed and wanted to kill me. I was fighting my own personal war.
But just like my ancestors, I persevered and I am a survivor.
I am from the past, but now I am building my family’s new history...
A history yet to come…
