No other date on the calendar more potently symbolizes all that our nation stands for than the Fourth of July.

Mac Thornberry

This Fourth of July is special to me because one of my clients will be at the Seattle Center’s Armory Building receiving her United States citizenship. She is a lovely and hardworking individual pursuing the American dream. One thing about America is that it has been built on great dreams and in this country we have the opportunity to make our dreams come true. My client will be an asset to our nation and my wish for her is that her dreams come to fruition.

Her excitement at receiving the news of her acceptance as a US citizen is infectious. And it should remind all of us who are Americans just how lucky we are to be a part of this great country.
