Today I made a collage of my own personal photos. I have always loved reds and blues, but now these colors have a whole new meaning in my life.
Two years ago, on July 3rd, I was sworn in as a US citizen. It was about time! I had put it off for years, thanks to a serious (and incurable, I’m afraid) case of chronic paperwork-itis. Becoming a citizen of the place where I have lived most of my life was a huge milestone in itself, the bonus was that it was a day before the birthday of my new country.
Tomorrow my family and I will say thanks to the patriots who gave us a free and independent America. I will read to them about the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence. These men of means and education who had security, but valued liberty more.
Happy July 4th to everyone!
