to the Veterans who have served our country. As the organization moves forward they envision
The men and women who helped shape the face of this country through their honor, legacy, and patriotism are those we call veterans. They are our dads, moms, uncles, aunts, brothers, sisters; they are our family. Yet, we constantly overlook their desire and passion for this country. The gratitude that they deserve is not shown towards them, as it should be. I thank all veterans for their
While I admire the work that many veterans have done, I don’t believe that I would be able to make the same sacrifices as they did. As a service to their country, they took it upon themselves to protect those unknown to them. They are a part of something greater than themselves in which they are essential to the outcome of the whole. All roles are of equal importance because without them all our rights would be unfound. There would be no freedom of speech or right to a fair trial. Our country would be without purpose if we
Pursing a career as a medical doctor is an opportunity for me to mentor youth in underserved populations. As a child, I was raised in the low income, urban community of Roxbury, MA. Although not as notorious today, the neighborhood had garnered negative attention for its high crime rates. My mother emigrated from Haiti and raised me as a single parent. Due to our financial circumstance, Roxbury became our permanent residence. I have always felt there was something lacking in Roxbury in comparison to other towns I visited. My teenage years were largely spent in the suburban town of Stoneham where I attended high school. There was a literal difference in air quality and a psychology contrast in future prospects. While native students of
So you may be wondering why you should vote for me. Well, you should vote for me because I'm in NJHS, responsible as well as organized. I keep my grades up and I'm always trying to help somebody. I'm proud of EAGLE, it's my home and take this schools reputation seriously. I want to be a voice for this classroom as everyone's opinion matters. I feel I'm approachable and open to everybody's ideas. Vote for me and let me represent all your ideas.
I partially agree with Pangloss’s statement because we never know what the future holds for us and we can never predict our fate therefor what happens to you today (now) or what you have is the best you can get or have in your live. For example, considering
To begin with, America has lived up to these expectations by giving freedom to everybody. We’re born with liberty and rights. Although many take their rights for granted, America still provides rights for those who don’t take their rights for granted. The day United States declared independence was shown on Placard P. 4th of July is celebrated every year
Boom, boom, boom. “Mommy, that one is my favorite!” Screams a blonde haired, blue eyed five year old little girl as fireworks screech into the midnight sky over the crystal blue lake on the Fourth of July. Nearly two-hundred and forty years ago our beloved land was born, gaining independence from Great Britain and declaring America as its own. From that day forward July Fourth would be celebrated with parades, festivals, and get-togethers across the nation. Red, white, and blue blanketing towns, patriotic music blaring through speakers, and fireworks shooting into the night sky, all to celebrate the birth of our nation. Across America no matter what day it is, the Star Spangled Banner flies high, to represent the passion and love Americans have for their homeland; however, present day issues are rivaling the foundation our Founding Fathers built the Untied States around.
July 4, 1776 marked a very special day. A day that holds the future for many. The day that reminds us year after year up to this day and beyond that we shall never forget. How special you may ask? July 4th is known as the 4th of July. We celebrate this day with fireworks, parades, cookouts, camping, vacations, and more. What are we celebrating? We are celebrating the day America became free. The day our founding fathers adopted the Declaration of Independence. The day that 13 colonies claimed their independence from Great Britain.
My hope for the future is that all veterans will be respected the way they deserve. This includes respect from the people of America and the Government that controls this great country. From professional athletes sitting for the national anthem to high school kids sitting for the pledge there has been lots of disrespect for the Flag of America. The Government also is to blame because while they worry about other little things there are people that have risked their life for the freedom of this country yet they are left on the streets.
I belivie that in the past and even today men are seen as the stronger sex. They are the ones who make the destions and control most things. This fact makes me want to work more harder and stronger to be able to take care of my self. I see my self as being able to be independent and deserve to be happy. And I want everyone to to feel and see themselves this way. I'm also fully aware that I'm not quite ready to be completely independent. My age has a lot to do with that. Most people wouldn't rent out an apartment at 17 years old. But as I continue to grow and change I will become more mature and capable of reaching that leaves of independence.
Americans are very proud of their country. Americans practice nationalism. Nationalism means that people take pride in the country they live in. An example of nationalism for American’s is the Fourth of July. On July Fourth, 1776 America claimed independence from Great Britain, thus symbolizing the birth of the United States as an independent country. This was an important date in American history, which is now celebrated every year by millions of Americans. Americans gather and celebrate the freedoms and rights they have because of this date. July Fourth is a time for celebration and fireworks. This event in history to this day brings Americans from all around the country to
The Fourth of July is a national celebration of the United States independence. It has been commemorated by American’s since 1776. Since the 18th century, Americans have been using picnics, speeches, parades, and a variety of many other activities to rejoice their independence from Britain. These celebrations emerged after the Declaration of Independence was signed in the summer of 1776. This holiday has been a journey for American’s to show their patriotism and fight for their basic civil rights and liberties.
I, Jessica Cleary-Reuning, want to be part of the We the People program, in order to develop my knowledge, gain insight, insure younger generations awareness, speak up for the greater good, promote my generation's voice, and engage my curiosity, about the government of the United States of America. I live in Eliot Maine with my father, mother, and brother. I take immense pride in my school work, sports, and other extra curricular activities. Ever since I was a little girl I have always had an interest in the government.
