How have you been? Welcome to this wonderful world! I have wasted my whole day to think the hook just because I want to catch your attention. I know your life may not be easy in this country, what hardships you are going through now, all I was experiencing throughout my life. I would like to tell you America is a beautiful, democratic and educated country, that’s why I moved here before you born.
When the economy started to recover, they had to go abroad to fight for their country because of the war. After the war, they got back to daily life, and contributed to make the country’s most powerful peacetime economy. They also recorded highest marriage rate and birth rate, and became parents of the Baby Boomers. This generation has accomplished a lot throughout their lifetime, but never showed it off. No generation before and after them could do the same, that’s why Brokaw named them the “Greatest Generation.” However, I cannot agree with him yet.
What it means to be an American. Being an American is different for everyone and everything. To one person being an American can be country and no technology.

There are countless interpretations of the American Dream because times have changed, no two people are the same, and each person faces varied circumstances. What was once depended on in the past is no longer needed in the present. When the Dream was first created, it fit the criteria of that time. It fulfilled a life where it, "...should be better and richer and fuller for everyone," (The American Dream). However, as time goes on,what meets those standards changes.

Some people view Americanism as an attitude, not a nationality.
I never knew there was a gold star on the service flag. The gold star was added to the service flag and had taken honor and is placed over the blue star. The service flag is the official banner authorized by the department of defense by the families or the members that are serving or in the armed forces. There is a day that the flag gets older and older. So every year we celebrate a day called Flag Day.
If there is one thing that defines American patriotism more than anything else, it’s the Declaration of Independence. From such a young age, students across the nation learn of the extravagant document that separated the American Colonies from the tyrannical English monarch. July the fourth, a day known to all Americans, is often cited as being the day the document was signed. However, the authors of After the Fact decided to do more digging to uncover the truth behind this most patriotic work of Thomas Jefferson. They begin by challenging the potentially most well-known “fact” of the Declaration of Independence - the fact that it was signed on the Fourth of July.
Which of those statements are true? None of them. They 're all bogus. But that won 't stop them from circulating among some Americans as MLK Day approaches. When the United States commemorates King 's birthday on Monday, most people will celebrate the actual man.
American Exceptionalism is a true and driving force in society and politics throughout America’s history, this idea can create multiple debates over opinions of the matter. First American Exceptionalism is the idea that America is exceptional to all other countries, the belief that we are dominant to anyone and that nothing stands in our way. The term American Exceptionalism is found commonly used in a political setting, but also affects the normal everyday life of all residents of the United States of America. The idea of American Exceptionalism has been a controversial topic for years now, and many scholarly authors have written their own opinion, or somehow addressed American Exceptionalism in a book or essay.

Many people have different definitions of what it means to be an American. Americans are brave, welcoming, and some may even be considered judgemental. In America everyone is welcomed with the right to express themselves and the same equality as everyone else. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and that’s what makes America so diverse.
