My response is a poem describing the ideals of America and the people within. The poem takes into account why so many migrate to America and what it means to be an American. It describes America as a place of freedom and hope.

By Owen from Bay High School in Ohio

America, home of the free

America, home of the brave

A place seen as a new beginning

The banner spangled with stars

A symbol of hope

A symbol of a nation unified

Despite vast differences of the people within

The American dream

A dream within reach

A place were hard work is rewarded 

Where success is dependent on you

The government in place for the people

A nation unified by stories

Memories from distant lands

Brought together by a common goal

A goal to find freedom

A goal to find acceptance

A goal to achieve the ultimate dream

The American Dream
