“CLASS IN THE FACE OF INSIGNIFICANCE“

Nice to meet you, albeit only through your colorful comments in the social media arena. I noticed that you referred to me as a “token” wife to my husband. Odd, seems you do not understand what a “token” is.
You see Ms. Savad, growing up in poverty in New York City with my mother, sister, and brother and crowded into mostly tiny apartments, “tokens” were what we used to travel around on public transportation.
We didn’t speak English when we arrived here but we knew from the beginning that hard work would be the key to open the door to that uniquely American better-tomorrow
I now own a small business where I consult on web-technology.
P.S. The attached photo was taken at our family party celebrating the day I became a US citizen.
