A woman's brother is migrating to the US from Ireland. She does not want him to go but with the many push factors that come with staying the man finds it best to leave. Figure out what happens next when reading this historical tribute!
Well I'm off to the United States! I really wish you could come with me sister but I know your family loves it here and wants to stay.
But this is the opprotunity of a lifetime! Some things that have inspired me to migrate to the US is that there is much land there to live off of and things over there are much more modern.
I'm going to miss you brother. Why leave your home Ireland? You've been here all your life.
Okay okay. I see your point. But haven't you heard about the Arrival Experiences of immigrants in the US?
Well with this potato famine on the rise I find it in my best interest to get away from it before it becomes an epidemic.
Yes. I am aware that I will be put through some exams when I get there like an eye exam. I am also aware that I will strongly be encouraged to take classes on American culture and the working conditions might not be up to par considering a lot of immigrants work in sweat shops....
Goodbye!! I'll write to you as soon as I can. I love you.
Well if it means that much to you I will be happy for you. This does seem like an amazing opprotuity.
I guess that means you can get on the boat now.
I love you too. Try not to get seasick from this boat. It looks like it's going to be a bumpy ride. This is also a travel experience immigrants have to go though so be safe brother.
