My thoughts on America.

By Hailee A. from Burke High School in Nebraska

America is a country of wars.

Regardless of size, these wars are always fought,

Fighting for various things.

Between equal rights and gun control,

Immigration and bathrooms,

No fight is left unfought.

This country fights at all times.

Fighting the close minded,

Fighting the man, fighting school shooters.

The war is now,

The war is America.
