I believe we as Americans tend to scream and shout about freedom of speech and freedom of expression only until someone decides to use those same freedoms to say something or express themselves in a way that offends our own views and beliefs. It’s never right to suppress anyones speech regardless of what they are saying. That is the great thing about this Country. The freedom of expression forms the basis of other rights and allows them to thrive. Being half African American and half Caucasian brings a lot of issues to my attention.
He knew that he was extremely hated for supporting equality but that did not stop him. When most people think of heros they often describe the heros as having righteousness. Righteousness is a major belief one must have to be a true hero and always do the right
Americans have embraced some key values and therefore chosen to also accept what costs those values might bring. Individuality is an important part of American legislation, life, and lineage, but with the cost of self-reliance. “Every man is the architect of his own fortune.” is the essence which this value encompasses and was inspired by. This value is the bedrock of other major American values, such as equality and freedom.
Without love America would not be the country that it is, we would not cherish our luxuries, we would not care about our country as a whole and we certainly would not be as successful as we are. Americans have a lot of love and passion for our country, we have more passion for our country than we do for our Sunday football, which you could say is a lot. Love is something that you cannot fake, love is something that you genuinely care about and with love comes positive actions. We show our love to America by joining the army, voting for positive positive people to represent America, working and we sing our national anthem proudly while looking at our flag passionately. There is one thing that we Americans love more than our country and that is each other because we are a
He talks about how if we don't start standing up for our freedom as a nation the British will take it away from us and we would have wished we did something about it. “Not a place upon earth might be so happy as America” (Paine, paragraph 9). America shouldn't stand to take abuse from Britain because we are built with freedom and strong courageous people. When stating this by Thomas Paine, the people would have gotten excited and ready to go and fight because they have fought for their freedom before and they aren't afraid to do it again. Paine also states that the colonists should end it all with perseverance and pride so we don't look like cowards.
We must speak our minds openly, debate our disagreements honestly, but always pursue solidarity. When America is united, America is totally unstoppable. There should be no fear -- we are protected, and we will always be protected. We will be protected by the great men and women of our military and law enforcement and, most importantly, we are protected by God.
America is known as one of the greatest nations in the world, but its greatest asset—freedom—is also its greatest weakness. Freedom brings great responsibility that many just push aside and ignore, but it is my duty to America to fulfill these responsibilities. My responsibility to America is to have a great sense of patriotism, represent myself through national activities, and follow order to support my country and all it provides me. Patriotism is a great key you need to have in a successful country. America was founded because of the people who wanted to escape their old country.
Martin Luther King taught what the true meaning of the word freedom was. He proved it was crucial to a happy life, and that every American was worthy of it. __________. America is a country that not only allows, but encourages freedom. Freedom is a large part of the american dream because it is what Americans take their pride in.
Here in America- especially my generation- we take our freedom for granted. People look at America as a happy, hardworking, free country. A country, that if you are diligent, you will be able to support yourself. America has given us so many chances but when will everyone learn to use them accurately.
In an attempt to help the South, John Wilkes Booth shot the Abraham Lincoln, the President of the United States during the Civil War. Since Booth lived in the United States, shooting the President could be considered the ultimate act of betrayal. John Wilkes Booth thought that Abraham Lincoln’s newly formed Union would die with him, giving the South a chance to make a comeback. Unfortunately for John Wilkes Booth, that was not the case; his actions proved to do the opposite. While Abraham Lincoln was still alive people were unsure of their trust in him, but after Lincoln was assassinated, he became a martyr loved by almost everyone.
Being an American is to help each other, whether you be Polish,Chinese,Afghan or Muslim. Being an American means helping your sworn enemy, even if you do not want to, but you shall help with dignity and pride. Being American means that you capture the true aspect of every being, from the simplest little flower to the most-beautiful person in the world.it also means that we are united as one, under whatever deity you worship, and to be able to
If Americans actually did their responsibility they might have a better answer to that. “Every citizen makes his country’s honor his own and cherishes it not only as precious but as sacred. He is willing to risk his life in its defense and is conscious that he gains protection while he gives it.” We have so many rights and freedoms in this great country the least we can do is give back and fullfill our obligations to it. I believe there are 3 obligations that are the most important.
It’s the most honorable monument in the USA. From what i heard from www.nytimes said that it’s one of the most emotional moments ever in the USA. I don’t see why people wouldn’t want such great monuments like the vietnam war memorial war up. It’s one of the best things that we achieved in america 's pastime and a great accomplishment. Every name
"...As Americans, regardless of background, we are really more alike than we are different. Each of us has an obligation to stand up for the rights of fellow Americans — not with rancor or bitterness, but with pride and resolution”, once stated by former U.S Congressman Norman Y. Mineta, these words are often left unheeded in today’s American society. Not a single day goes by without ignorant individuals spewing toxic lines about stereotypes another individual’s heritage. In this day and age, it is beyond inconceivable that discrimination in any shape or size still exists in our world, let alone our nation. Undoubtedly, this is an issue that we must address, and the first step in solving it is to adhere to Mr. Mineta’s statement.
