Centenarian Becomes Citizen (from

Dar Sun Kim, 100 years old, looks over her naturalization papers declaring her an American citizen while her daughter Chin Duk Chung stands behind at Flushing Hospital December 21, 2009 in the Queens borough of New York City. Kim, who was widowed in her native Korea in the 1940s, moved to the United States about 20 years ago to be closer to her children, and had always wanted to become a citizen but presumed she was too old. Her citizenship paperwork was in progress when she was hospitalized last week with stomach illness. USCIS officers decided to administer the oath to her in her hospital room.
