"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

Revolutionary War

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…
