"The Lost Art: Remembering Amy"

https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/lost-art-remembering-amy-john-t-krotec/ Okay, I admit it. In fact, we all can. We’re trying to cope in a busy, chaotic, high-tech, hi-speed business world out there. We live in a universe of complex algorithms, myriad social medias, and seemingly easy-to-use technologies.

In fact, it’s a common bond that many of us carry in the States, very similar stories of our relatives coming here to make a better life. My grandparents on my father’s side of the family came in the early 1900’s...
