Thinking of my European heritage as we face U.S. elections

As I write this column, on the day before the presidential election, it is without knowing who will be leading our country for the next four years.

A comment I often heard during this election season, often with humor was: “If (fill in the blank) is elected president, I’m leaving the country.”

It just so happens that I’m trying to become a Spanish citizen – a move that speaks more to my heritage than my political beliefs.
