Being an American

All these words stand for what I think being an American is.

All these words stand for what I think being an American is. Having hope in myself and others. Being free to do what I want. I am citizen. I have rights. I have a community of people that have the same rights as I do. I have friends that are always there for me. This is what I think being an American is.
