Strive To Succeed

Posted by Perla S. Arizona

We should all follow our own American Creed. How all the immigration statuses are breaking everyone apart. We should all just be united and keep striving to get a better life than we already have.

What is your American creed? To me the American creed is to be proud of where we came from. To never forget anyone that we came across. To accept the call of aspiration and to accept that it's not just ourselves. To be able to rely on everyone. Ask people to come together and listen to one another for their differences. That destiny is not handed to you, you have to work for it. To take care where you are from to where you are heading to. The American dream is based on luck. Education is key to success. To come in terms with where you come from and how it changed you. Do what you want to do and be what you want but don’t leave anyone behind. If you believe you can unify and bring us together. With respect and trust we could get somewhere. Immigration statuses are breaking us apart. People come here because they believe they can improve their lives. If we bring children united we can also bring the parents together. We are those who make america great.

This immigration status is ruining families. For example, in the news article The Guardian: Torn apart: the American families hit by Trump's immigration crackdown, they talk about how families are being torn apart by their immigration status. “More than 90% of removal proceedings initiated in the first two months of the Trump administration have been against people who have committed no crime at all other than to be living in the country without permission”(Pilkington 2017). This shows that we are all discriminated based on where come from. We should continue to follow our own American Creed to be able to be happy. No one should be judged. We are all human beings therefore we are all the same. No one has more rights than others. We live in a free country. Our soldiers didn’t fight for us so that we would be judged, they fought so that every single person in the United States is free. We should all have that in honor of everyone who lost their lives at war.

Life has great things for us, we should all continue with what we believe in and follow our own American creed without anyone telling us something.
