With all the rancor in America over immigration and race relations, an event in the Cleveland Cultural Gardens celebrated the different cultures and traditions that make up America.

There was a very simple way to tell you what One World Day was about, simply look at the many and varied faces of people who became citizens at the event on Sunday. Different faces bringing their different cultures to Cleveland.

The costume colors were vibrant, as was the music, with people taking pride in their heritage, celebrating their different backgrounds not judging one another. Something Federal Judge Solomon Oliver addressed to 25 people sworn in as new Americans.

The judge told them we cherish diversity.

“We don’t ask that you give up your religion, we don’t ask that you give up your heritage and by all means we want you to bring your talent  That is what America stands for,” Oliver said.
