My American Creed

What does being a american means to me..

By Thomas C. from Crownover in Texas

Being an american means living your dream in a unique life from others and that you have freedom. “You know that being an American is more than a matter of where your parents came from. It is a belief that all men are created free and equal and that everyone deserves an even break” by Harry S. Truman.

Living your dream in a unique life from others. The definition of dream is contemplate the possibility of doing something. By having lots of opportunities, there is always a path for your dream and the path which you choose depends on the dream you have. 

The definition of freedom is the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint. By having the right to speak, you're not ruled by a another human. 

In conclusion, we know that being an american means living your dream in a unique life from others. We have that freedom. If you’re a U.S. citizen, it doesn’t matter. If your race is different from others, you should be proud of it. It makes you unique.
