To be bicultural and to have dual citizenship is a true blessing. To have dual citizenship means to be a citizen of two different countries. It means to belong to more than one place. It means that you have the opportunity to experience two different cultures.
To be able to jump back and forth from language to language, to be able to enjoy many diferent holidays, and to be able to call more than one place HOME is priceless.
I have seen the American flag rise on many times in many places, but I had never seen it as majestic as I saw it at the San José Earthquakes vs. LA Galaxy soccer match.
It was gigantic, and the best part was that it was being held by the troops. As the flag went up, I felt free. I was honored to witness that moment.
“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
Living La Vida Blogging is a Spanish blog, but today I felt inspired to post in English.
Happy 4th of July!
