To me, there are many gifts that America has given to you and I. These gifts all might be taken for granted and not acknowledged by all of us, but they all make huge impacts in how we live our lives. These gifts can be our freedoms, our land, and our laws. Although these are all grand, I think that the biggest gift of all is being able to call all of these gifts ours. It is a gift being able to do this because we are able to live free lives, believe in what we like, and say what we like.
Fear of the unknown, could be and had been stand in the way of achievements and success. Everyone is capable of fulfilling The American Dream to achieve prosperity and success by applying determination and hard work to daily life. For me, the words of Eleanor Roosevelt stand as a mindset to continually stay focused and determined – only then will I reach my interpretation of the American Dream of individual
“Some say the American Dream is over, that we can’t recover, that the flame is beginning to flicker. That is wrong. We may have a crisis of spirit but our strength endures and our strength comes from pulling together” (Kasich). In this quote, it is made apparent that John Kasich has a vision for the future and plans to, with the help of our nation’s citizens, correct those imperfections to improve our overall quality of life in America. This is important because as students, mothers, fathers, and workers, we see many problems within our country and all of the candidates promise change but Kasich has provided us with plans to actually take action and make a real change.
There is always contradiction on whether if people in the United States posses ro mich freedom or not. Although freedom is one of the most important rights citizens have, people continue to argue on this status. Moreover, people argue that our society should give the greatest amount of goods, even if it means less freedom, others argue that by restricting freedom human’s health can improve, however; when we allow individual behavior to endanger others, we’ve damaged both freedom and health. First of all, the greatest goods should be achieved for the greatest amount of people. For example, by people providing exemplary behavior, they can remain in liberty, and have a good life style.
To be whatever religion I desire, that is freedom. 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.
One of the most important themes in The Giver is the significance of memory to human life. there is no pain from the past without memory, there is also no true happiness, and purpose in the world if we can’t live through the footsteps of the amazing people before us. Memories help our generation hold on to the important information and stories that happen through the lifetimes of our ancestors. Memories keep us from repeating the same mistakes that brought countries to debt, and loss. With memories of our past we can use those to gain a better future and build
Haiti had already been so poor with history or political instability and colonialism, that this disaster hurt them real bad in trying to help each other and keep their city going each and everyday. Within this article, Pitt uses similes and metaphors to compare nature and humans. He even says, “Sometimes, though, you have to wonder if the planet itself is not conspiring against this humble little nation.” He goes to question is the world or the nature of everything is happening cause the universe wants to get back at the nations for being so cruel? Or is it that it 's trying to help little nations, like Haiti itself, noticed by bigger powers because they have something to offer but need help staying on their
We observe today widescale human rights infringement of refugees and degradation of morality as individuals, including children, sit idle in war torn regions hoping for the chance to make a better life in America. Seeking protection, many brave and vulnerable individuals experience additional breaches of human rights as a consequence of mandatory detention. The United States holds in its hands the power to ensure all refugees are treated with dignity and regard for their basic human rights, and yet still struggles to assure the survival and the success of universal liberty due to xenophobia and bureaucratic interference. Unwilling to witness the continued undoing of human rights to which the United States has consistently been committed, this
It’s actually your duty to live it as fully as possible.” Seth Godin American author and public speaker once said “If it scares you, it might be a good thing to try.” As time has passed, I have observed that life can be magnificent if I make it magnificent. The power is in my hands to make my life awe-inspiring! After riding Steel Force I learned that I can enjoy my youth by being adventurous, daring, and intrepid. I have learned to enjoy my life, to be bold, to be crazy, stupid, silly, I have learned to laugh and be
I believe that liberty and equality for all will always be important, but not just to the American society, but to all people. Every individual across the world deserves equality and liberty because they are basic human rights. I do believe that liberty and equality was more important in the past only because so many more people have been able to achieve it since then. If Abraham Lincoln hadn 't worked hard to present these ideals to the American culture, we would be living in a very different world. A world where women would be deprived of basic rights, and where children 's education would not mean as much as it does today.
People come from all different places and look different they all should be treated the same as others. In order for a person to make a change in the world like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had it takes a lot of persistence and being brave ton faces a lot of people. I agree with Obama because to this day, America has gained more freedom and equality in the world. In the speech,“I Have a Dream” by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, he shows how America is making a change within freedom and equality. A quote from the text is when King states, “ With this faith we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day” (line 10).
America is a place where political union is alive, alive from the people who worked to create it and worked to make it better as a whole. Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Paine, and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. are a few of the people that wanted and worked towards this goal. Jefferson declared freedom for all in the “Declaration of Independence,” Paine expressed that one must work for their freedom in “ The Crisis,” and King expressed how even after having freedom one must exercise the rights one is given.
Most Americans today still treasure and hang on to these amendments. For the ones that do not seem to care we do need to absorb these values to take part in civil engagement- which also involves motivation so that we stay a united country. And to do this we must obey these rights and not take advantage of them. If these rights which I find today have not been revised as others have. We will take away and lose our American heritage.
In the end it is cultural diversity, bondage, international relationships, unity, equality, freedom, and justice for all, what makes America a great place to live. No longer can we harbor division, and hatred towards one another, let’s expand our horizons, to inspire many generations to come, and gear them to
The great President Ronald Reagan once said, “America is still a beacon, still a magnet for all who must have freedom, for all the pilgrims from all the lost places who are hurting through the darkness toward home.” (Artifact 4) Like a magnet, we draw people in. We are the only country in this entire world that has had such success from our very beginning. Because of the hope of a bright future, our founding fathers worked to make today possible. My personal belief is that God lifted their fences and cleared their foggy glasses a bit to give them each individually a glimpse of what could be. I believe they were gifted with imaginations far superior to yours and mine.
