Welcome to the 49 new citizens to this country. Your trip was by many different routes and for many reasons. It is a time consuming process and each must have patience and persistence over the months and years that it takes. The real journey is now beginning as you face a new language, customs and traditions.
Be patient with us as you will find we make mistakes because of our ignorance about your beginnings, customs and traditions. Take the time to share your story with those who ask and listen to others. Citizenship in the USA has many benefits but also requirements of each citizen. I pray that you will find acceptance and help in your new country.
Once again welcome to this country and I am sure we will all benefit from your decision and talents you bring to society.
N.D. Kennedy Sr.
