I find it truly amazing that MTSU hosted a Naturalization Ceremony. This ceremony acknowledged three hundred people as U.S citizens.Their hardships,hopes,aspirations,and love of the United States was finally recognized on September 17,2012. In my opinion American citizens today take advantage of the freedom to vote,have a voice,available education, and decent healthcare. I know citizens from different countries wish they had our form of government.Americans complain about the government all the time but should be thankful to have civil rights and liberites. The speaker at the ceremony was Cheif Justice Gary R Wade of the Tennessee Supreme Court. He was very passionate about the ceremony. He spoke to the hearts of soon to be U.S citizens and the minds of current citizens . He reminded the current citizens of how fortunate we are to live in America and have citizenship.Although, fortunate is a small word compared to what we truly are which is blessed.Also it is very innovative that MTSU was able to record the ceremony. So,Those who could not attend the event could view it online at itsc3.fsa.mtsu.edu/itsc/flash.It is good that MTSU is using technological resources to share this ceremony with others.Lastly,not only was this naturalization ceremony a special moment for the three hundred people gaining citizenship; It was a historic moment for MTSU to be apart of. Im so glad we hosted this event.
