From the naturalization ceremony held Oct. 10 in Cooley Auditorium: Becoming an American is a process unlike any other. With tears rolling down these individuals’ and their families’ faces, the room was full of relief — relief felt from an earned sense of freedom they didn’t have before. Whether they had to flee or fight to get here, every new American citizen took a deep breath in appreciation for their new lives.
