Together We Stand

My acrostic poem is about what it means to be an American to me and all the qualities an average American should have.

By arturo s. from Desert View High School in Arizona

Living in the U.S. I believe we should have freedom to support our country

Even though I believe everyone in the U.S. should support our country

Those who live here

Should be able to freely participate in any way

Helping to keep our home safe

Everyone should have the freedom to do as they wish to an extent

Let's all stick together..

Present us as a whole instead of an individual..

Everyone united as one is stronger..

Americans to me are those that support each other and who

Contribute to a bigger cause.

Having the right to stand up and defend from wrong and

Oppose anyone that intends to effect the peoples rights.

The American people can do much more than they think.

Here we are, united as a whole, and that builds our country

Each individual contributing to better the united states

Reaching to better ourselves and each other
