Going Home, by Pat Hardigree

Joe’s dream was to travel the world. He also wanted to go to America.

He grew up during the Nazi occupation and their callous treatment of other humans. After the Nazis left Czechoslovakia, Communists took over. Joe’s godfather encouraged him to leave his country and go to America. He told Joe that he would not be able to live under communism. Freedom was too important to him. Joe made the choice to leave, and “Providence,” as he would say, “provided the opportunities he needed.” Joe gets his visa, but everything doesn’t always go as planned.
