Song Analysis
American Soldier by Toby Keith
I am proud to be an American. This song has always been close to my heart. I have family that has served in the military past and present. I pray every day that our service men and women are home safe in their beds at night. For those that have had to go overseas and serve, it is hard on them and their families. The time they spend away from their families in order to protect us is often not thought about. This song represents the men and women who serve our country and the sacrifices they make. This song portrays how we as Americans should represent our country, soldiers or not. We should be proud to be Americans and represent our country in the best possible way. It also shows that we should be there for each other, to stand beside each other and to do what is right. If only all Americans could have the bond for each other that our soldiers have, we would be a much better country. They fight beside each as brothers and sisters for our country and protect our rights. In the Declaration of Independence it states that all men are created equal and they should have the right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. Our service men and women fight to serve our country in order for each one of us to have these rights and to be able to live our lives to the fullest each and every day. Yet when the soldiers return, they are often not given the respect they deserve. We as a nation need to come together and support them for the service they have given our country. We as Americans should not take things for granted. We should all be responsible for taking care of our soldiers and our country.
