Today, I took my civil test for naturalization. I was sitting with all the other applicants who came to this country legally, despite all of the legal hoops, tomake a better life. The news was on, and we were watching Comey give his report on Clinton...
There I was, the South African, speaking with a Mother of 4 from Mexico, an attorney from Venezuela, and a Greek student. Flabbergasted. All of us with a feeling of deja vu. We have seen this before. We know what happens when politicians are above the law. We know what it is like to watch your country crumble before your very eyes because of corruption.
We also know the heartache of having to leave your country and everything you know because you fear for your safety and that of your children.
You will always be a foreigner in a new country, despite your love, loyalty and gratitude toward that country. But, in 20 years, where will Americans go? Who will be America's America?
I don't care which party you support. If you can't see that today was a sad day for this country, then you are a fool.
