Iva Lawrence, 2002
Iva Lawrence’s mind is as tidy and organized as the lovely home she and her late husband, Vincent, built. About to celebrate her 97th birthday, Iva speaks with authority about her wonderful neighbors and family. Many regularly drop by to chat or to inquire about this or that—local history, local news—how to make something, or just discuss the weather. But sometimes, as with Hurricane Irene (August 2011), they are there to ensure her safety.
There’s wood smoke in the air, and as the leaves fall and the days grow colder and shorter, we all start to live more of our lives indoors, seeking warmth, looking for food to keep us fueled during the crisp, gray weeks and months ahead. We come inside, we hunker down, we eat.
What if you woke up one morning and discovered that you’d lost your English? What if you couldn’t understand what the shopkeeper was saying to you? What if you didn’t have the words to ask directions or to understand them beyond pointing? What if you couldn’t tell if that sign was a welcoming or a warning message? Many of our recent immigrants confront these challenges, and more, daily.
