I have to admit that, this time, I nearly forgot and had to do a bit of rushing to meet the midnight deadline.  I may have misinterpreted the picture, though the general thought was still there.

A New World

101 Words – @SVBookman
The classroom was normal for that area and day. People were older and simply trying to get into the United States. The tasks were not insurmountable, but seemed so to some. The teachers were stern but not unfeeling. The one thing that could not be stopped was the immigrants’ desire. Everyone in the room had come over on a steamship and none had money for the passage back. This was an all or none deal. They had to pass. They had to receive their citizenship papers. They began again reciting the pledge and working hard to get the words entirely correct.
