A little about myself.


I was born in New Britain, CT and later moved to Chicago at about age 5. Shortly afterwards, my sister and I went to live with my grandmother in Białystok, Poland. We lived there for over a year and returning somewhere before the bicentennial in 1776. My mother told me that during those years in school I had to relearn English. I was put back into the first grade by the Chicago public school system (Nightingale Grammar School 52nd/Rockwell); because I did not speak any English. It took me a few years but I believe by the time I was in 3rd grade I was able to communicate both in Polish and English. Unfortunately, now I was a year older than the rest of my class mates. We moved around through my grammar years attending Nativity BVN 2nd through 5th (68th/California), then Five Holy Martyrs School from 7th through 8th (43rd/Richmond). I attended St Laurence High School during my freshman year and then Curie High School for the remainder. During my HS years, I was ranked in the 10% of my class. Our family financial status could not afford me to stay more than 1 year in St Laurence, hence back to the Chicago Public School system. I experienced the benefits of both schools systems, the private and public sector, and I wish our family could have afforded my education at St. Laurence. I do not have many good things to say about the public high school (Curie) administration or the system. I had great teachers but the system was not supportive of students. I never had an opportunity to meet a counselor, the best I can remember is that I was doing well and turned away by the counselor for under-performers. I wanted to know about college, but the administration did not provide that to me. So through my friend I looked for guidance and met a U.S. Navy Counselor (recruiter). That is another presentation that is only part truth to young men and women about college at the time. Today, I am very proud to have served and hold Veterans dearly and my fellow crewmates.

Familiarity Breeds Contempt

Jeszcze Polska nie zginęła,
Kiedy my żyjemy.
Co nam obca przemoc wzięła,
Szablą odbierzemy.

Marsz, marsz, Dąbrowski,
Z ziemi włoskiej do Polski.
Za twoim przewodem
Złączym się z narodem.
Przejdziem Wisłę, przejdziem Wartę,
Będziem Polakami.
Dał nam przykład Bonaparte,
Jak zwyciężać mamy.

Marsz, marsz...
Jak Czarniecki do Poznania
Po szwedzkim zaborze,
Dla ojczyzny ratowania
Wrócim się przez morze.
Marsz, marsz...
Już tam ojciec do swej Basi
Mówi zapłakany
Słuchaj jeno, pono nasi
Biją w tarabany.
Marsz, marsz...
