One of the coolest things I did this weekend was to attend Patrick’s citizenship ceremony. Finally he is a Canadian!
Most of us will never fully understand the difference that makes for him. He now has all those rights and freedoms we take for granted. Freedom of travel – well we used to be more free before needing passports to travel to the states, but at least still do not need a visa. Imagine if you had to travel to the nearest US embassy each time you wanted to travel to the US, never knowing if the request would be granted.
