Expressing Your American Creed

Everyone has a different American creed, and here is mine.

By Izzy J from Niagara High School in Wisconsin

My American creed is to have equality for all. To me this is the most important thing. In society today, there are many challenges that many, many people are facing. What gender you define as, your race, the shape and size you are, etc. There are many more which is a problem because it should not matter. A human is a human and nothing should be able to change that.

What I do to express my American Creed is speak my voice. I have it for a reason so why not use it for good instead of bringing people down. If I hear a person bringing someone else down, I will speak up and stop it.

If you are someone that likes to physically express anything, you could join the military. Some people show their faith and love for our country through serving it. Your American creed could then be expressed.

There are so many different ways to express your American Creed. Clubs, protests, meetings, rallies, and just being there for someone.
