A privileged 4th of July



One of the owners of  the I and J restauarant  is from Poland and after much hard work, she became a U.S. Citizen on this forth of July. I had never been to one of these services before and must say it was a privilege. There were 300 people from 60 different countries being sworn in as American Citizens after meeting all the requirements and passing  the test.
There were camera's..........



a full auditorium of friends and families

People helping the elderly that didn't speak English (there is an exception for those over 65 years)

There were speaches and music and at the end of the ceremony they played the song (I am proud to be an American by Lee Greenwood).......all   300 stood and sang as they waved their flags.  






Congratulations Izabela!! We are proud of you......................

Some times they are more excited to be Americans then we are sometimes to be Americans. We take it for granted and bascially we are so blessed and lucky!

These 300 know more about our country than 3,000 Americans born here and maybe even more which is sad. I think it is wonderful for us to welcome all our legal citizens. Peace
