What it means to be an American

Posted

Daniel Alfama came to United States about ten years ago from Cape Verde. On April 19 he was nationalized as an American. “This is the best country in the world,” he said Friday afternoon at a reception held at Bishop Hendricken High School. He has worked as a janitor at the school for the past couple of years. Alfama said what he loves about this country is the respect he is given and that in this country “you can work hard and have something.” Alfama’s willingness to help however he can and that he is a member of the Hendricken team were themes in the remarks of school president Father Robert Marciano. Hendricken alumni Brigadier General Andy Chevalier presented Alfama with an American flag, calling Alfama’s achievement an “incredible milestone in your American dream.” Alfama received proclamations from Mayor Frank Picozzi and Congressman James Langevin. Alfama’s wife and two children are Americans. (Warwick Beacon photos)
