Five years ago, Hubbs and I and youngest boy spent the night in Detroit so I could take my citizenship test early the next morning.
Five years ago, I passed that test with flying colors.
Five years ago, I raised my right hand and took the oath of allegiance to the United States of America and proudly stepped forward as a new citizen.
Five years ago, I got my second passport.
Five years ago, I couldn’t have imagined that five years later I’d be heading to Washington, D.C. this morning to represent my employer and my state.
Only in America!
