so i am a recent citizen. naturalized in the fall of 2010. i will forever remember the judge presiding over the ceremony. she told us ‘look around…,’ (i had a hacidic jew on one side and a refugee from burma on the other side) ‘look around carefully. i want you to know that when you walk out of that door, you’re going to be equal to everyone else walking on that street’. the fact that this country is built in equality is what really attracts me, you can come from anywhere and find freedom and equality and good chances to build up your life in a way unimaginable anywhere else.
