My Vision for America “Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others”- Jonathan Swift. Vision is important to have. Everyone has their own views on how America should be, but I think that we could make the world a better place. There are many reasons on how I think that we could improve our country for future generations. Our kids and grandkids are going to live here and we need to make it as great of an experience as we can.
My dream is that we are all able to achieve our dreams without infringing on the rights or dreams of others, letting dreams ever expand and flow freely. In America, the people will help each other achieve their dreams by supporting and believing in their causes. The people will grow above and beyond the petty whisperings of those who wish to deceive. American society seems to force individuals into a prototype of the traditional American, however, nothing would more serve the land of the free than encouraging characters to flourish into a mighty nation of truly diverse individuals. The foremost dream of America is to create and nurture perfect, free individuals.
In 1877, The United States was on the rise of the industrialization; America rapidly expanded, immigrants moved to the “melting pot,” and the nation became economically advanced. In July of 1776, the thirteen American colonies declared their independence and the nation was the “ United States of America.” The Americans wanted to be free form Great Britain because they wanted sovereignty and did not want allegiance with Britain. In 1803, the U.S. first purchased the Louisiana Territory from France for fifteen million dollars, which doubled the size of the land. The expansion happened quickly and allowed the nation to grow in power because America had more resources. The U.S. added fifteen parts of states to their territory for about forty-two
My Vision for America America has had many changes over the years, some for the better, and some for the worse. Right now, more than any other time in our history, America needs a BIG change. With the right leadership, right values and principles, my vision for our country is very promising. What are the right values and principles? Who is the right leader?
When you think about America as a whole what comes to mind? For me, America represents equality, freedom and most importantly a vast amount of diversity. America thrives on diversity; the different cultures, religions and races are what makes America exactly what it is—‘the melting pot’. Many people from all over the world dream of coming to ‘the land of the free and the home of the brave.’ Its very existence is what people desire to be a part of.
In the poem “America” by Tony Hoagland, the author discussed the American lifestyle, and the culture presently in his own perspective and opinion. I agree with his opinion about the people in America, and the atrocious reality that we are living in today. This present reality that Hoagland addressed reflects my view and my perspective not just about the people who lives in America, but innumerable people that lives on Earth. Hoagland, not just criticized the lifestyle and the way Americans are living, but also the materialism that exists in most of the people.
Many immigrants came to this land of prosperity and the land of freedom to give their kids a better life and education. “ I brought you to this country now, do something with it.” (from the article The American Dream Lives On by Yasmina Shaush). I understood this quote because my parents also brought my siblings and myself to get a better education and I plan to do so, to make them proud.
It is widely known that large American companies take advantage of cheap and demeaning labor. For example, it made big news in 2010 when eighteen young Chinese workers attempted suicide at a Foxconn factory (Litzinger, 2). Instead of improving conditions after this tragedy, Foxconn installed safety nets around the factory to catch future suicides. It was later discovered that corporations such as Apple, Dell, and HP all benefited from Foxconn factories, and that every iPad and iPhone could be traced to a Foxconn factory or another small, obscure, foreign company (Litzinger, 2). This exploitation of Chinese workers living on low pay, long hours, and no rights, should be unheard of from American corporations who supply our country with goods we have come to love.
First I want to say welcome to New York, the city of my birth. You are going to experience NYC like never before. I also want to say welcome to LaGuardia, a school that has done nothing, but give me a great college experience. Like most students, many of us has had to take English 101 and I will tell you firsthand how valuable this class is. You won’t learn about how to be a good writer, but how to become a great one. In this class I’ve transformed my writing from novice to expert and I am very proud to say that. Most importantly above all you will learn about yourself in ways that you never thought. That’s through the writings and projects we’ve done on others identity. The writings that shape our own identity were through blogs we’d have
“America” by Tony Hoagland represents the America the teacher once knew and the America that it has changed to and how with the times not only people changed but the way we look at America has changed. The Poem America represents someone who may have a hard time growing with the country. Hoagland uses figure of speech, imagery, and symbolism to prove this point.
America is a nation where great things happen consistently, but with the good comes the bad. People are judged and criticized everyday for who they are or who they like. This should be changed. In this free country no one should be stripped of what they are because it's different than a majority. If the citizens of America come together and realize being different is not a bad thing, we can begin to heal as a whole nation. Together we can change for the better.
This is both good, and bad, it really just depends on the issue. Politics should definitely consider the word of God while making important decisions for our nation. However the government should not decide important roles for the church. Leave decisions to the church and businesses that support the church.
I envision a nation our founding fathers would have expected to emerge from the seeds of freedom and responsibility they planted in the American soil more than 200 years ago. America is a hopeful nation, secured and blessed by God and enlivened by faith. Where you go to your small hometown church every Sunday morning with your family or how ever else you worship your God or whoever you follow any way you want. This America leads the world in religious freedom, where faith is cherished and protected in private and public. It leads in family stability, where heterosexual marriage is the backbone of society.
America’s Greatest Gifts to my Generation Today we will be talking about America’s gift to my generation, which includes freedom,YouTube, and Instagram. Freedom is very important to my generation because it gives you the freedom to do anything imaginable. It gives you the freedom to make your own choices, to let your imagination run wild. That is why freedom in America’s greatest gift to my generation.
America, the land of the free, does this reign true after the years of war and amendments to the Constitution that have been implemented? Our nation has gone through so many changes. Is there even a resemblance to the original system the framers of the Constitution envisioned? The majority of the Constitution has remained constant over the years, and those changes that have been made were for the amelioration of the country.
