What makes someone an American? Interview "I am not any of the faces you have put on me America every mask has slipped I am not any of the names or sounds you have called me the tones have nearly made me deaf"
(Safiya Henderson) Failure of an Invention
One Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. (Pledge of Allegiance) Historical To be an American is to have a creator "God" that provides freedom, liberty, happiness and justice for all. Final Thought I think to be an American is to live the American dream.
"You have opportunities to give your family more than you could have in your home land. How I see it. Is that people come here to work and better their life".
"What makes someone an American to me. You can't really tell by someone's actions or how they look because everyone has there own point of view". "Every mask has slipped" Being an american is not about being white, it's about showing who you really are.
"I am not any of the names or sounds you have called me". Not all people have the typical American name. All men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life , liberty and pursuit of happiness.
(Declaration of Independence) Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion.
(Bill of Rights, Amendment #1) To be an American is to have a creator "God" that provides freedom, liberty, happiness and justice for all. We may have different stories, but we hold common hopes; that we may not look the same and we may not have come from the same place, but we all want to move in the same direction. (Barack Obama) "A more perfect Union" America is full of different cultures, religions , and languages. But we all came here for the American dream. My country, 'tis of Thee, sweet land of liberty
Of thee I sing ; (Irving Berlin) God bless America We should all be happy that we live in America. An American is someone that has all the benefits that this Country offers to it's Citizens according to the law. Hypothesis What makes someone an American is to have all the opportunities that this Country has to offer to there Citizens. What it means to be an American is that you're a Citizen of the United States. Mina Angel
