  • I Am Now an American Citizen!  /  illuminateLA
    were so far from me I wished they were here with me in this country that guarantees them freedom and liberty But I know that we all have to find our own way and I moved on The Oath Ceremony was at 8am at the Los Angeles Convention Center downtown I kissed Stephen goodbye at the entrance of Hall C and told him that I ll see him as an American in a couple of hours I lined up with 2600 men and women most of whom were dressed celebratory and I prepared to give up my Green Card and my status as a Permanent Resident People in line were quiet and avoided eye contact perhaps filled with thought like me thinking about their homes both past and present maybe they were thinking about their journey to get here or about what the future would hold When it was my turn to drop my Green Card into the plastic bin I hesitated for a second This was it I m not a Permanent Resident anymore I m becoming a Citizen I let go of my card and then was handed a yellow envelope with a small American flag and a letter from President Obama welcoming me to America We were all seated neatly in lines and rows and I started chatting with the people next to me I sat next to John who was born in South Korea He came up from Orange County for the ceremony and was very excited On my right was Matt from Trinidad Next to him was a woman from Canada I think all the world s nations were represented in this one room on this early December morning We could have signed a peace treaty with everybody right there People were asking their neighbors to take pictures and within a few minutes video cameras were running and both men and women were sniffling caught up in the moment We were packed into our seats shoulders touching shoulders After about an hour of introductions instructions and welcome speeches we viewed a video with President Obama welcoming us to America watched God Bless the USA music video by Lee Greenwood that was specially edited for the naturalization ceremony you can see the video here we stood and said the Pledge of Allegiance and lastly the National Anthem was sung We got back in line to receive our Certificate of Naturalization and as people were picking up their certificate blank faces from earlier were now filled with big grins and people acknowledged each other as if they were old friends I was smiling as well but something was missing for me because I thought I would feel American after the ceremony As I was moving towards the exit I passed some tables Some were offering passport applications some had certificate covers and some were registering the new citizens to vote People stood in line to get their passports before the holidays the certificate covers were selling like

  • My New Year’s resolutions for 2011 /  illuminateLA
    streams amongst my immediate contacts and with one trip I could knock out potentially two three or four trips that my neighbors would do I will put a note up on our apartment s bulletin board so that people will be able to drop off their electronic waste days before I signed up to a community garden so hopefully I can get my first vegetable harvest in the fall of 2011 I m very much looking forward to the garden Sinking my hands into dirt raking and shoveling watering and pulling I love the dirt and this will be exciting I will experiment with homemade cosmetics This I ve done before written about it a few years ago as well and I think it s time to revisit it again I love home remedies but often times it s the time that prevents me from experimenting but I ll make the time in 2011 I will call my family and friends more often instead of communicating via social media and the Internet This I believe is sustainable for my health as well as my friends and families health When we sit down and talk to each other in person our blood pressure goes down anxiety disappears we take a break from the hectic daily life which will make us healthier and happier I will help with clean up events in the neighborhood at the river or at the beach I used to do this and I miss the feeling of afterward when I looked at the lot street mountain top field or riverbed and see everything cleaned up I m looking forward to doing this in the coming year As I m writing this down and planning for 2011 I feel the joy for the new year These simple goals
