America’s gifts to my generation mean a lot to me. One gift America has given my generation includes freedom. Freedom is a gift that America has given my generation because freedom gives us Americans the right to speak, act, and think as someone wants without restraint. Some freedom acts include Freedom of Speech. In this act you have the right to express your ideas and opinions.
We have triumphed in the effort to implant hope in the breasts of the millions of our people. We enter into a covenant that we shall build the society in which all South Africans, both black and white, will be able to walk tall, without any fear in their hearts, assured of their inalienable right to human dignity — a rainbow nation at peace with itself and the world. We dedicate this day to all the heroes and heroines in this country and the rest of the world who sacrificed in many ways and surrendered their lives so that we could be free. Their dreams have become reality. Freedom is their reward.” Mandela emphasizes liberation, hope, equality and many other emotions throughout the speech.
“Some people live an entire lifetime and wonder if they have ever made a difference in the world, but the Marines don't have that problem.” - President Ronald Reagan, 1983. I think this quote, by Ronald Reagan, not only speaks for marines but for all veterans who have served their people and made sacrifices to protect the rights of those people. I am proud and take great pride to be living in a country protected by such courageous men and women who have served to make a positive difference in our country. When someone risks their own life for the betterment of others, it is a very noble act that requires immense bravery and courage. Our American veterans epitomize the great values of what the United States of America was founded upon hundreds of years ago by our founding fathers, our democracy, the principles of freedom, liberty, and courage.
It is such an honor to write a report about it as it affects so many people. The flag is an inspiration to United States’ citizens because it represents unity, purity, and justice. This is key to a successful nation and its people. The flag also brings hope and courage to all. When you look at the flag all you may see is a piece of fabric that seems to be everywhere.
To Jefferson this was his most meaningful contribution to his nation. In 1776 Jefferson was tasked to write the rough draft so that the congress can debate on it. While writing the Declaration of Independence he came up with, “All men are created equal and have the inalienable right to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness.” His words inspired many other people who help create the declaration of Independence and stand up for what they believe. Everyone was excited to read what he has written and often always agreed with him. Jefferson obviously had a way with words and when to use them.
America is said to be the land of the free, and for the most part this is true, but it will truly become a free country for everyone when the truth is out in the open for the people to see and most importantly for them to be educated. The only path for a balanced civilization is to maintain high standards of values and knowing the simple fact that an educated world brings with it educated ideas and mindsets. Remember that
I agree with the statement by Yasmina Shaush, an immigrant from Ukraine, ” To be born in America is a gift, one that should never be wasted.” For most people in America, we often don’t realize how lucky we are to live in a country that has freedom. We have the freedom to make our own decisions, get an education, and work in the field that we want to. Some countries in the world don’t have these things. *enter here* To be born in America is a gift because of all the opportunities we have. Most people have the opportunity to have a good education.
What is other people’s opinion about immigration? What types of programs/organizations have they started to help immigrants out to not cause any problems anymore? Immigrants in U.S. are not necessarily “bad” people, they made a lot of sacrifice and risk to come to the U.S. for freedom and a better opportunity, for the government and people not treat
I loved that it made me reevaluate my life and how I am living it. What I also really liked about this speech was that It gave me a scene of respect for all those who have ever fought for our great country. I love America and am grateful for all that I have. I have always been grateful for what soldiers do, but now I realize how harsh war is. How scared and tired they must be.
People tend to want to trust that the society and culture that we grow up in is generally good and that we do not need to constantly worry about it falling apart into ruin. However, we all do live in imperfect societies that gladly head forward into their non-perfections. Socialism is a theory that says that everything should be lead and directed by the community involved. It is only a real possibility, though, if everyone is truly looking out for the best interests of each other, and not looking at how they can advance their own agenda. As you may know, that is not always the case in our own culture.
“We all know, of course, that the American Dream exists because we live in a nation founded on certain extraordinary principles. Much as we take them for granted, deep down inside, every American knows that they are especially fortunate to live in a land where they are accorded an enduring right to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. While most of us are very clear about what Life and Liberty mean, however, there is some confusion about the pursuit of Happiness. And it’s that misunderstanding which causes us to misperceive the American Dream.” So now many believe that we all should try to bring back a stronger belief in this concept and then everyone will know that the american dream is
I just want to thank our veterans for everything that they have done. In this essay I am going to write about what I am grateful for, how hard it is to be away from your family, the sacrifices that I think they have made, what they are doing for our country, and some facts. I think this will be a good topic for me because my great grandpa fought in World War 2. I will never forget him. So I hope you like it and I’m going to get started.
Civil Rights Struggle Barrack Obama once stated, “Because of the Civil Rights movement, new doors of opportunity and education swung open for everybody …”(Nguyen et al.). The civil rights movement is one of the biggest achievements in American history as a country who 's founding fathers once said all men are created equal. It was all possible because of millions of people who wanted to see change, and give better lives to the children of the future. The United States Supreme Court has experienced many important cases, but some have changed America for the greater good: Dread Scott vs. Sanford, Plessy vs. Ferguson, and Brown vs. Board of Education. Dread Scott vs. Sanford is debatably the Supreme Court 's biggest failure and
The Pursuit of “The American Dream” The “American Dream” has always existed as a primary fundamental of American culture. The basis of the “American Dream” is that every US citizen has the right to receive equal opportunity to attain success and prosperity through hard work, determination, and initiative because it is a given right offered for everyone, personal to each individual, and extremely rewarding. The pursuit of the American Dream is chased after by many individuals from numerous diverse backgrounds. Thomas Wolfe once said, "…to every man, regardless of his birth, his shining, golden opportunity ….the right to live, to work, to be himself, and to become whatever thing his manhood and his vision can combine to make him." (Wolfe) The
America has survived all of those wars through the bravery of its troops and the ideals they fought for. It is in this time, the present, that we must harness all of these identities. During a time when countries and religions and families are fighting, we must remember what has kept our country going for 231 years. The United States were founded so that we could
