Are you proud of your Country?
The answer to the question above would be absolutely yes! I love that everyone in this country has freedom of speech and everyone is treated equally. I think the most inspiring person that once lived in America would be Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. He showed that if you really want something and believe in something, go for it! Even though I wasn’t alive in this period of time it taught me never to give up on something, even if people may doubt you. When Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation it helped, but didn’t fully change the life of an African American as Martin says in his famous speech.
The Declaration of Independence clearly states that all men, colored and white are to be treated equally. Back then, sadly, Americas failed to keep this promise. “I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, and every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight; and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it together." With this saying people started, not just to hear, but to listen.
I couldn’t be any happier to be an American. Martin himself made this country better in a way where everyone is now treated with complete respect. Not just African American people, but all people of all different races. It also is amazing to be alive during the term of the first African America president, Barack Obama. This truly shows that everyone thinks of each other equal in every way. He, just like Martin, fought for something that he wanted to happen. Obama believed he could do it and went for it!
I’m proud to be an American and always will be! This country taught me to fight for something I believe in even if everyone else doesn’t. Every day I see people stand up for what they believe in and even if I disagree and everyone else does too, they still have the right to fight for it and they do. This right to...
