My Naturalization ceremony this morning was so powerful and emotional that I struggled to speak and to say the Oath of Allegiance. I took a breath and continued. It was so important for me to say the words out loud, to mean them, in their entirety.
The Judge who presided the ceremony said it best, “What is America? Look around you, you represent 57 different countries. Becoming an American Citizen means accepting the world as your nation"….. and that is how I Define American!
