I was honored and pleased to attend the citizenship ceremony for Britgal Sarah today! Thanks Sarah and her Okie gentleman hubster, who let me tag along. And I do mean tag, because my walking speed was non-existent in my little surgical bootie!
Can’t remember what country they originated from. Ghana maybe?
Mexico! Great number of new citizens were from Mexico. Second was (I believe) … Viet Nam.
The judge officiating got a little misty-eyed during the ceremony!
Everyone swears to give up their homelands and then swears allegiance to the USA! That is Sarah peeking over the top of the crowd. Girl in black top was from Peru.
I’m sure MRM would have been very inspired by the little speech /video given by President Obama.
A speaker from the class of today’s new citizens is a medical doctor from Romania. Now, he DID give an inspiring speech. Raised under Communism, he learned about freedom from a little radio broadcast (Voice of America?) that he listened to as a child.
Being an American gives you the right to dress like this guy. He was in charge of new voter registration. Hey fella! Arlo Guthrie called and wants his hair back!
Uhoh! I think she spotted all of her entourage who were snapping away.
All over but the flag waving!
Congrats Sarah! Thanks for letting me come and help you celebrate. Now it is time for a Lortab and the sofa.
