As a child I was teased for having red hair and freckles. I became painfully shy and scared by the negative attention my looks garnered. But then one day I learned of my Irish heritage. I have embraced my ancestory and my red hair and freckles. When I listen to my relatives tell stories, it's little wonder I am a writer. I can't wait to visit Ireland oneday.
I love the legand of St. Patrick, though, I'm sure his tale has been embellished over the years as only the Irish can do. I've included a couple of links to websites where you can learn more about St. Patrick and the day we celebrate.
