Happy Fourth of July!

What does it mean to be a citizen of the United States? Since I was born here I don't even know what it would be like to live without freedom to speak, vote, or have certain rights and protections. Today 300 were sworn in as naturalized citizens of the U.S. in a special July 4th ceremony. My co-worker and friend, passionately pursuing citizenship for more than a dozen years, helped give me a sense of how special it is to live in the United States.
