Comment: Pride And Peace - We are pleased to carry an editorial from Tamar, one of our team members, who just received her US citizenship.

Eight years ago I could not imagine I would stand in the court room taking an oath of citizenship of the United States. It took me a long and not so easy eight years, but standing in that court room made me realize that all the struggle was worth it. Citizenship makes me feel completed - now I feel settled and fully belonging to the United States - I am not stranger, an alien, any more. I am so proud to be a part of this country, to be able to vote and be able to make my contribution to this, my adopted country.

At the ceremony, there were people from almost every country on earth. After the oath was taken everyone was congratulating each other and shaking hands, it was amazing. We were people, just human beings, not distinguishing each other by skin color or nationality, just equal and happy Homo Sapiens. If politicians could feel the same as we all did in that moment I guarantee there would be peace in whole world. Originally I am from country of Georgia. I love and cherish my traditions, culture and religion. I will always follow these customs along with Americans's. I will be bearing citizenship granted to me with pride and respect, so help me God.
