My American Creed

My speech is about my personal American creed and what it means to me. What I believe makes me American is my freedom, responsibility, and equality. Everyone in America is held to the same standard and has the same opportunity to achieve greatness.

 My American creed is represented most by freedom, responsibility, and equality. First, my American creed is represented by freedom because in America, people can dream and aspire to be whatever they want. An example of this is that slaves are no more and citizens are free to make their own choices. Also, my American creed is portrayed with responsibility because people are held accountable for the positive and negative contributions they have made towards society. One example is is someone commits crime they are punished but people are celebrated if they do a good deed. Last, my American creed is represented by equality. People in America have the same rights and the same opportunity to achieve greatness and it is only accomplished through working and doing your best. Therefore, my American creed is represented by freedom, responsibility, and equality.
