American creed

This is my American creed

By Bryce h. from Scott County High School in Kentucky

     This country is one of the best countries in the world. Everyone from all over the world have the dream of coming over here. It can be for a various amount of reasons. Some come to escape prosecution and religious threats,for a better job,and etc. it’s so diverse here. It doesn't matter your color ,religion,or where u come from you can become an American citizen.

For me it’s having rights and being treated equal. In the past America hasn’t accepted diversity as easy as today. Such as slavery. We have had a long history with slavery. It was a lot of hate going on amongst us America’s. Even when slavery ended there was still hate and problems with giving us rights and treating us equal. A lot of people fought to make this country the way it is today. Martin Luther king fought for our rights and so did Rosa parks. Martin lost his life fighting and they were both put in jail for this it all payed off. Now we have had our first black president, and soon there might be the first black governor. It’s been a long journey to get where we are today.

We have a lot of pride and patriotism for our country. One example is 9/11 we all came together as a country to lift one another up. During the Olympics is another example. This is away to compete against other countries in a safe manner. And the support and fan base is just amazing.

This is what America means to me and this is you taking a look through my eyes of this country. So now I want to know what’s your American creed and what America means to you. In a nutshell to me this place is a patriotic,free,and diverse place and I am blessed to be here.
