“America Day”

In our house, today is “America Day!” July 4th is when we celebrate Independence Day, but not everyone is fortunate enough to be born here. For some, it is a much longer, much tougher journey. 3 years ago, on this date, I made the decision to dedicate myself to this country, raised my right hand, and swore an oath to serve and protect her. 3 years ago, I CHOSE to become an American.
