Five years ago today I became a U.S. citizen. As I’m currently visiting my native Germany it occurs to me how fortunate I am to have had the experience of spending half of my life in each country and immersing myself in two different cultures. There’s more to be said about this journey when time allows but I can’t help but think the world would be better off if everyone had at least two nationalities, including knowledge of language and culture of each country. If you could choose, what would be your two picks?
I may be mistaken, but I think I must have been the only one of the 1500 newly naturalized folks who celebrated his citizenship with a cake on a Corporate States of America flag. It’s a great country and I love my Yankee friends! 🙂
