Why I love America? That question of those classic school work assignment questions. I myself have been asked it on numerous occasions, and I have answered it on numerous occasions as well. It seems as though every time I write an answer to it I can never really nail it
What it means to be an American has nothing to do with race, gender, size, origin, etc. Being an American solely relies on how far we have came as a country to call the United States of America a home, how we have fought through blood, sweat, and tears; depressions,
America offers so much to the people who live in the U.S., but America will always be full of criticism, violence, and people who are offended by everything. America still seems to manage to be one of the world's best nations. The first Americans planned America to be as successful as it is, but for America to be more peaceful. America is not one of the most peaceful places, but it is not the most dangerous place to live. Even political parties lie and cheat each other. A lot of the Americans are greedy, because they take advantages of what America offers to their citizens. Even though America is not perfect I am still glad to live in the U.S.
When people think of America, many think of the land of opportunities. In my opinion, America is a bad country. There's a plethora of racism in this country. Racism is a very cruel form of hatred towards another race. This country still has segregation even though it ended years ago. Segregation is a system that keeps different groups separate from each other. Violence is another big factor that makes America a bad country. Violence is the use of physical force to harm someone, to damage property, etc. Violence is a common factor in this country, we hear it on the news and sometimes even witness it. Discrimination is also a problem in this country. Perhaps, America needs to implicate laws that would make America great again.
What’s So Great about America? In the essay “What’s so great about America” by Dinesh D’Souza, the India born author shares his experience while living in America. D’Souza first starts his essay saying “Here is a country where everything works”(D’Souza 237-238), everything from the highway sign to properly working public toilets. He also emphasized how overwhelmed an immigrant can find themselves while visiting a supermarket for the first time. D’Souza then compares America to most countries today that does not have the most basic of health care products like deodorant which “is unavailable in much of the Third World”. New immigrants and people all over the world are witnessing the lifestyle of the poor in America living well, other
America is a wonderful place to live, because we are free. Freedom is important, and many people in other countries do not have much freedom. I am glad I have a place like this to grow up in; where I know that I can be equal with other races and other genders. Also, I am glad I have a place like this that will respect me and I know it will be a great place to have my children grow up in.
There are several instituting concepts that for me illustrate the founding principles of America and the hopeful vision of the future of this country. There are those that stood out for me during my research for this assignment and resonated with my feelings and understanding of the country at large. First and foremost is Life Liberty and the Pursuit of happiness; this sentiment is to me the very cornerstone of the hope of America’s inception. Given this principles self explanatory nature I will concentrate on the other founding concepts that have meaning to me. First of these would be the thought of benefiting from one’s own hard work, second is the inalienable rights of man, and lastly the concept of the least possible government being
America Is Not So Great Americans have been breaded to believe America is the greatest country in the world. America is a place of the freedom and possibilities, an outside looking in a very desirable place to live. However, America is not as great as Americans believe. Sure Americans have a wider range of freedom then most countries, but has plenty of issues that will repulse others from coming to the land of the free. Issues such as women’s rights, racism, and discrimination plague U.S. citizens nearly each day and that should change now.
“Everything is just starting for you. Your life hasn’t even begun yet.” – Adisa Trebinčević (221) When citizens in war-torn homelands aspire for better lives, they commonly have to look outward and travel across the world to follow their dream. For Kenan Trebinčević and Amal Abulheja, their dream wasn’t necessarily
What is it that makes the United States great? Or rather, as the question should be, what made the United states great. The answer to that lies in its unlikely creation as a group of intelligent, motivated, firebrand rebels forged a new nation on the principles of democracy and freedom. Our leaders and policy makers have always come from the people, where your next door neighbor can if he so chooses, run for office and shape local or even national policy. This system, for the people, by the people, is what made us great. However, as time went on and as always the creation of man began to lose its purity and beauty, the political institution began to become less an embodiment of the people, and more that of a small group of the people within
How Can the Problems in America be Fixed? The United States is one of the most powerful countries in the world. Although right now, we are trying to get up from a big fall. In my opinion, our country has many problems that I think we can solve including health care, immigration, and foreign affairs. Americans want them solved. That way, we can live in a safe and powerful country, and we can restore the American Dream.
America is hope. It is compassion. It is excellence. It is valor. People from back then were a lot better with finding different ways to do thing if that first way didn't work. They didn't have anything do it for them they also were not as modern so they didn't have machines do it for them.
A long, long time ago in a country not so far away, the king and queen of Spain decided they wanted to find a better way to get to China in order to have many more splendid robes. Back in the olden days, the Silk Road in China was popular. Anybody who was anybody wanted to find a way to get there by sea. What better way to exert superiority than to send an explorer in search of the first water route to Asia? So, the king and queen gave this important job to a young explorer by the name of Christopher Columbus. The poor man was so terrible at directions, he landed on a completely new continent that was certainly not Asia. Columbus decided to name this new land “America.” Soon after telling of his discovery, several European nations began settling in the New World. The only problem they faced, other than new diseases and famine for the first few years, was the natives that were already living there. What started out as a peaceful
My vision for America is that someday we come together as one, which means there will be no more fighting ,no more violence in today society, also the army will not have to go out to the other continents and fight a war because we are going to get threaten if we do not go to war and even worse consequences , also that we don’t have to pay for healthcare or any medical bill, which means that every job will have healthcare even the small jobs if they have a big company supporting them or any major company. All the people in jail will stay in jail until their sentence is over and will be on parole for how long they were in jail because they did bad thing they will be consequence no matter what they did. Also the people in the army when they come back will have an option depending how old they are when they leave
America is a great country. We have been given from our founding fathers a constitution, which is still being changed to this day, due to the fact that it is a living document. We are given freedom of religion, speech, press, we have the right to petition
