I became a citizen today. The ceremony was at the LBJ Auditorium, UT. 354 new citizens from 74 countries. It was a moving ceremony. There was a man sitting a few rows in front of me and he was so excited! - he waved his little flag and clapped at every opportunity. I am very happy, very pleased. I came to the US on August 12, 1987 - 18 years, 1 month and 4 days ago. I feel firmly planted here - it is such a good feeling for the nester in me.
