It was the most inspiring, patriotic event that could ever be witnessed on such a day. The room was filled with optimism and pride in the USA. The spontaneous cheers from us, the observers, as the final words of the oath of allegiance were said, was so overwhelming that each of the 77 had to look all around the building to see where it was all coming from. You could tell from the gratitude and wonder on their faces that they and the officials administering the oath were overwhelmed by the good will that filled the hall.
I am truly proud to be an American.
