Worth the Wait

November 15, 2022

All the fears dissipated when I got the official letter in my mailbox telling me the date and time of my official Oath of Citizenship. It was one of the best days of my life.

This was something I’d been dreaming about for years, one of the most crucial moments of my life. I’ve officially been granted all of the same rights as a US-born citizen.

The one I’m most excited about using? My right to vote.

I have my own issues with this country, and at this point in time, I probably have more problems with this country than before. But, I still love this country. I believe this country could do better. I’m staying here and want to fight for this country’s future.

As I stated in my Oath of Allegiance, “… I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic;”

It’s my forever home, and I’ll be damned if I allow for the systematic de-establishment of all of these guaranteed rights.
