As an American, I believe in freedom. What kind of freedoms? The freedom of speech, the freedom of religion, the freedom to vote, and so on. America to me means that you are free, that you are safe, you are at home, that you are respected, and treated equally. America is my home. It is protecting me and everyone else inside it.
America can be better, though. We need to end war. We need to stop fighting others, our friends, our families, and ourselves especially. If we can all work together, we can accomplish anything. All we need to do is work together, not against. We could stop all the problems in this world if we do this. America can and will get better!
