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!
It’s almost like the stars would give us the light we need instead of the light we make ourselves
"I wish people could just say how they feel like ‘Hey I really don’t like when you do that to me’ or ‘Hey I’m in love with you’ or ‘Hi I really miss you and I think about you all the time’ without sounding desperate. Why can’t everyone be painfully honest and just save people the trouble."
