My American Creed

My American creed is doing whatever you want no matter what language you speak, what race you are, or even what country you came from. I also think that my American creed is freedom for everyone.

By Kaison Kaylor from Hazen Middle School in North Dakota

America means that we have the freedoms to do anything. 

America means that you can speak about the government and not get arrested. 

America means that you can protest about anything you want. 

My true meaning of America is military, power, rights, and freedom. We need these things because if we didn’t have a strong military we wouldn’t have had our freedom in the first place. 

America also means you can do anything, no matter what color your skin is, how poor you are, if you are short or tall, or even if you are intelligent or of mediocre intelligence. I love America!
