The America I believe in has bravery, peace, and family. When I think of bravery I think of my grandpa who was a pilot in the Air Force. He brought peace to other parts of the world as well as America. He made it possible to keep my family safe.
When I think of America I think of bravery. Bravery is the loyalty of our military. Since the 1700’s our military has bravely fought for us. Starting with the patriots and up through Afghanistan our military has kept us safe. On 9/11 the police and firemen were brave enough to save all the people in the Twin Towers. Bravery is demonstrated when people or citizens speak up for themselves stating their opinions. Bravery kept us safe over the years.
When I think of freedom I think of freedom of expression with art, music, dance, and speech. Our freedom ends when one person hurts the other with words or thoughts. We can have our own choice of jobs and education. In our America people can express themselves with how they dress.
The America I believe is at peace. Our country is not in war because we want peace throughout the world. A peaceful nation has equality for all races. We all want peace in homes too because some sons and daughters argue with their parents.
The last thing in America I believe in is family. Family is history, knowing your family’s history helps to know traditions and customs. All families should have happiness and laughter, this is possible in my America.
What do you think of America? When I think of America I think of bravery, peace, and family. It is a land of understanding, laughter, and promise. Not all people have the same opinion about “The America That I Believe In.”
