Plan of Success

This piece is about how I view America. My focus might be different from others.

Everyone's american creed differs from one another. In various aspects they are the same. It really comes down to what that person wants to believe in, and what they are surrounded by.

I believe that everyone should be given equal opportunities and equal rights. All of us have had different backgrounds. The only thing that matters is how we’re all here now, trying to make the world a better place. “In 2016, female full-time, year-round workers made only 80.5 cents for every dollar earned by men, a gender wage gap of 20 percent.” As long as they work the same job, it doesn't matter what the pay is, it’s the same effort.

I believe that everyone should be able to do what they want to do. Certain things will be hard to achieve but people need to learn to not give up. Some people are born into easier paths than others, but that is pure luck. Everyone should be born on the same page financially, but some families have more money than others. The family was just prepared, a lot of families are not. “Eighty-five million pregnancies, representing 40 percent of all pregnancies, were unintended in 2012. Of these, 50 percent ended in abortion,”

I believe race has no important matter in society. Sure, we can say we’re from America, and that makes us American. But where were our families from? Our parents parents? Then their parents? They really made us happen. People migrating here didn't care where other migrants were from. What they were looking forward to was a chance. What difference can you spot in a hard working white man and a hard working black man? Their heart is the same size, pumping the same blood, through the same veins.

Americans tend to try and make their lives hard for each other, so that the aggressor is successful. But maybe if we all were passive within our own moral, the world would not only be a better place, but a place for peace, growth, and success.
