Citizen U.S.A: A 50-State Road Trip [Documentary]

October 14, 2011 — Leave a comment

Over the past few lunches, I’ve watched Alexandra Pelosi’s HBO documentary, “Citizen U.S.A: A 50-State Road Trip” [website].

Check it out if you can – it’s a great film that  documents Pelosi’s “travels across the U.S. to attend naturalization ceremonies in all 50 states and meets brand-new citizens to find out why they chose America as their home.”

I’ll admit – I did get choked up a few times…  It made me feel thankful and proud to be an American and was a great reminder of how much we take for granted as native-born citizens:

“Many people would wish to be an animal in the United States.”
