My Rights about America

My American creed is about helping people who don't have any money.

By Russell Bennett from Hazen Middle School in North Dakota

America is a place where people can have the opportunity to fulfill their dreams. For me, my dream is to become an engineer.

Becoming an engineer would be a dream come true because they get to help people out and make a lot of money. They help people out by giving them tools and supplies and measuring things.

Not everyone in America achieves their dreams though. This could be because they probably don’t have the right education or they don’t have enough money to get the right education.

For these people, I would like for America to give them the money to pursue their education, so that America really is a place of opportunity.
