Re: [TexasCzechs] Preserve Our Language - Preserve Our Heritage
- Frank, you could not have said it better, I am a 30
and the only one left in my family in the US that
still speaks Czech as a first language. My sisters
feel that ,"when in Rome" and have not uttered a czech
word since they were 7 and 8 now they are married with
children and when my wife I speak Czech to our One
year old son they get upset because they do not
understand what i am saying anymore and tell me I am
being rude. i feel that a language is a part of a
person that should be expressed.
My son will grow up speaking Czech , German and
English ,and Cherokee (My mothers Language ) and with
God willing he will pass it down to his children. I
live in Arkansas, where the Old Czech Community in
Booth ,Arkansas is no longer, It was founded by Czechs
coming from Texas , Not one of the families have kept
the Language alive. and as for their culture they have
no clue....Well that is enough of this expressing.
Take care all.
