1979 ~ Eduard Flit and Elizabeth Davidovich ~ Berkley, Mi ~ By Marina Davidovich
The year is 1979... We are becoming AMERICANS! We are learning very fast that if you work hard, live modestly and save, we can reach an American dream. Our highlight of the week was driving to the bank every Friday to make a modest deposit. We were able to save enough money to buy a house in Berkley, MI. The house needed a lot of work, but it was OUR house. In March of that year my parents and my 19 year old brother came to the US after a long, long wait. I did not see my brother for 4 years and when we left he was just a boy. So when I saw a grown man walking towards me at the airport, I was shocked! However, his infectious smile was the same. I was so happy to see my family again. When we left Ukraine, we did not think we will see each other again. It was a very happy day!!!
