My op-ed piece on working together to create a better America

America was founded as a nation of immigrants. As a result many ideas formed one country. Unfortunately, the many ideas can also divide. The population does not always agree, but if we do, we can work together to be more productive. All who live in America must also be open to understanding new ways. We must be a community and learn to cooperate. Then the nation of America can come together and thrive.

America was built on a community of immigrants. When America was founded everyone came across the ocean usually from Britain. Even when people are born in America their ancestors are mainly immigrants. This explains how America was founded. We need to put aside race, ethnicity, religion, and sexes. If we could do this for the majority of people and put aside prejudices we could become a better community, and nation. There will always be people who won’t agree but if most people do, then those who don’t won’t have as big of impact against people.

If people work together no matter what we believe, it will help the nation progress in the future. People will be able to be more friendly, and in times of need, lend a helping hand. Thus, we will be more productive. Different things in the economy will thrive. This also needs to have people not judging others based on one action.

The thing that both ideals have in common is people cannot be closed minded. People who are close minded only want to believe what they want. They usually won't listen to others if they don't think the same thing. This is a big issue in any community situation; due to the fact that it can hurt cooperation.

It takes a lot of effort to creating the ideal America. America needs to be more open minded. We need to also accept people no matter who they are or what they do. We also need to accept new ways of doing things. This would be able to create the ideal America.
