Better Late than Never

Jose Temprana, just got his American citizenship.

He's pretty happy about it:
''I feel different,'' said Temprana, who served 30 years in Cuban jails. ''Satisfied, very happy. It was worth the wait.''
They finally let him out of Cuba when he was 93 years old.
Once here, he worked to get his citizenship. "I've wanted ... it since I was 8 or 10 years old," he said.
He's 105 now.

He wanted this since he was 8.
What a wait.
