My American Creed

My piece is about how we need to create peace and become more unified as a country

By Isaac b. from Scott County High School in Kentucky

     Unity, Peace, and Love is what I will be talking about in my American creed because many people are still discriminating one another because one is a certain race or didn’t meet ones requirements as a “friend”. I don’t agree with that so I picked this topic for my American creed.

I’m going to start by talking about unity because I feel that it’s the main problem with American society. Nobody’s the same and American citizens know this but yet and still do it, when they shouldn’t. Slavery has brought forth discriminant ways and particularly blacks and whites feud. We are in a new generation and we need to let what happened in the past stay in the past. We are in a world full of ignorant people and all they do is pick with people and we shouldn’t be, we need to accept people because if we could come together as a country other countries couldn't touch us. But me knowing America that won’t happen anytime soon.

Now and lastly I will talk about peace and unity. If we can get to the point where we’ve accepted one another like I talked about in my last point, that could help us gain peace and love each other. But with our unity it’s going to be hard to love one another because everyone is divided. Ways we can fix these issues are by making mandatory monthly meetings for a lot of people in certain towns, like in bigger cities that other cities pay attention to, and talk about why they don’t like a certain race and try to find ways to undo their way of thinking like that. And lastly, what I’d do if I could, if I had the power, I would be a unity activist and try to get people to realize what their doing in America and what it is causing.
