Over my lietime, I’ve been asked a lot o questions about my lastname o Liljenquist. “Where does it come rom?” Or sometimes,“What nationality is it?” And always, “How do you pronounce it?” While I’ve never tried to veriy this, I would guess that this line o questioning is a rather common American experience. I know that I’vedone my air share o the asking, always intrigued at the names I’ve runacross and trying to guess their origins.Te sheer number and variety o names we Americans go by reects who we are as a nation. We are an immigrant nation. oday, about75 million Americans are oreign born. And except or people nativeto this continent, the rest o us can trace our ancestry back to othercountries.Scattered throughout our amily lines are the stories o our ancestors who rst set oot on American soil. Tose who came o their ownree will did so because they hoped to nd something in America thatthey didn’t have in their homeland: personal and religious reedoms,opportunity, prosperity, and, in some cases, saety.I we look back into these stories, we will nd that our ancestors’motivations are the same motivations or immigrants today, whetherthey are authorized to be here or not. Tey are looking or something better or their amilies and children, and in many cases that is simply the opportunity to earn a living.Tat’s a motivation I understand, that I empathize with. It’s a motivation that Catholic Charities understands and empathizes with. And truly, people deserve that rom us—understanding and empathy, whatever their circumstances. It’s part o honoring their human dignity. And in the case o immigrants, it’s also a part o seeking justice orthem. As the immigration debate rages, I hope we remember our own origins,our own ancestors, and their struggles, and give thanks or the blessings we enjoy because o them. And I hope we can see our ancestors in theimmigrants o today.
