people could not have helped feeling patriotic and privileged to be an American citi zen at Tuesdays Fourth of July cele bration on the Plaza The plaza was filled with people wearing red white and blue colors and waving flags Bells were played and that signaled the beginning of the Community Band concert at the band stand After several patriotic tunes the old fashioned parade began and antique cars drove by to the sound of the band People then marched behind the cars carrying flags and tossing out free prizes to the audience You dont see people getting involved much these days Seeing peo ple taking part in the parade is just said Colleen Rivas of 153 Oklahoma Following the parade remarks were given by Mayor Paul Fraser Jr and three citizens who spoke about what being American means to them Many residents present said the speakers were the best part of this years program The best part of todays program was the Guatemalan speaker She moved me and really made me aware of how lucky we said Cindy Myers of 11 Amber Arc Cristabell West was one of the speakers present West was bom in Guatemala and received her citizen ship in June She said she feels privi leged to be an American and said she was speaking on behalf of all the peo ple she knew who died in Guatemala without having an opportunity to speak what they felt because the government shut them When I came to the United States I had a dream and that dream was a freedom to said West She also said that parents need to teach their children the importance of the American flag It is more than just a cloth It represents what many indi viduals fought and died for and citizens should respect it said West She also quoted her father who said she should love and respect her flag and be proud of her country So when you say the pledge and say God bless America mean it with all your she told spectators Patrick Pope who will be entering New Braunfels High School said being an American meant many things to him Among them was the right to travel throughout the United States without needing permission or a pass port He said this like many other rights are taken for granted and people should be aware of them and at the same time thankful for them 1 dont think we realize that some times We need to keep a look out for things that are Pope said Things that no other country can John Heberling who became a citi zen 25 years ago also told about his decision to become an American and what it meant to him Additional patriotic songs were sung and played by the band and a salute to the armed services were given Everyone present enjoyed them selves and credited the good time to various things However one thing that appeared to be similar among the group was their response to the ques tion of what made them proud to be an American Most answers included an appreciation for their freedom and part of that freedom was the ability to gath er at the plaza The idea that we get together as a community to mark the occasion is great We have the freedom to do what we like as long as we dont hurt our neighbors Thats something to be proud Triesch of 1160 Fox Run Circle Many of the individuals present said the remainder of the day would be spent having a barbecue or a picnic with family and friends The day would then end with the fireworks display which would be watched from the park or from home Those fireworks are
