By Harley V. from Hazen Middle School in North Dakota

“Welcome back to The Bobby Smith Show! I am your host Bobby Smith, and today I am going to talk about the American Creed. But first I am going to introduce my two lovely guests. The beautiful, smart, and graceful, Alison Hart. And the amazing, creative, and wild, Aurora Hart. So you two are twins right.”

“Yes we are,” replied Aurora.

“So which one of you are older?”

“I am 30 seconds older than Aurora,” said Alison.

“Nice, so today we will be talking about the American Creed. What does that mean to you?”

“Well, to me that means you are free to do what you want to do as long as you follow the law and everyone is safe and happy,” exclaimed Alison.

“How about you Aurora what does it mean to you?” said Bobby.

“Um, yes and no, yes on the, you can do what you want to do as long it is the law. But I think we need a lot of change. We need better and we want better!” shouted Aurora standing on her chair.

“Ok Aurora clam down. So what is your nationality?”

“We are German and Norwegian,” answered Alison and Aurora at the same time.

“Cool, cool, when do you feel the most American?”

“For me it is the Olympics, winter and summer, because I like to see our country there representing us,” replied Alison with a twinkle in her eyes.

“I think when I feel the most American is when we celebrate the 4th of July. When we shoot off fireworks and throw smoke bombs. It reminds me of war and what we had to do for our freedom,” declared Aurora.

“I have one more question for you two, who in your family came to America and why?”

“Our grandparents did and I think they came over for a better life,” thought Alison.

“And because the World War 2,” continued Aurora.

“Thank you so much for telling me your gals American Creed. And that is all the time we have today. Gooood night from The Bobby Smith Show!”
