SHOWING OUR PRIDE IN THE UNITED STATES.

The best thing about the U.S.A. is freedom. The other things I like are Magic Mountain, McDonalds, movies, and Coca-Cola.

I like America because people have freedom. African-American people like me aren't getting bossed around by other people. I'm free because Martin Luther King helped African-American people.

I like America because it is a free country. My mom and dad moved here because in Vietnam they had a war. I like it here because in Vietnam the school was destroyed. Here I can work in school so I can get a good job. My mom likes it here because we do not have to fish for food. My dad likes it here because he can get a job, also.

What I like about America is that there are no wars, I like living in peace. We also have lots of schools here. When I go to school I learn in Social Studies about the wonders of our country like the Grand Canyon and Old Faithful. On Independence Day I honor the people who fought for our freedom in the Revolutinary war.

The best thing about America is that people are free to vote. The other good thing about America is that there is no slavery anymore. It's good to vote because a long time ago some people were not allowed to vote. Slavery in the 1700's was very popular, but it was not fair to the slaves, but now it does not exist in America. There's one more good reason why - because we have freedom that's what I think is the best things about America.

The reason why the sports and freedom are so great in America is the sports are friendly competition. It also gathers people when they watch. Freedom is so great because no one can boss you around. And you have your own rights but when you do something bad your rights are kind of taken away. I like America a lot.
