new Citizens

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of attending the Naturalization Ceremony at Mt. Rushmore National Memorial for 158 brand new American citizens! An awesome setting for these joyful new Americans. They were all ages, young, old, those serving in our military, many ethnicities and cultures, coming from 58 different countries on 6 continents. It really does give pause to think of the journeys they have made and the lives they came from.

And in the next year my daughter will be in one of those ceremonies as she gets her American citizenship.

Red, my congratulations to your daughter. It is a profound decision to become a citizen, and a lot of hard work. I will be proud to have her among us.
