Why I Am Proud To Be An American

I have been an American citizen for over thirteen years. I am an American citizen because I grew up in America and have lived in it for my entire life. I am technically part Russian because my Great Grandparents came to America from Russia. However, generations after that have lived in America. I am thankful to be an American because if freedom of religion. The people who first came to America came looking for that, because back then there was none. I am a Christian who serves the one and only God. I can go to church every Sunday knowing that I can praise God without hiding my religion. There aren’t many nations who have freedom of religion. Some have only Catholic, Muslim, and so on as religions. I am grateful to be living in America because, we have a free enterprise system. In the beginning, when the English ruled most of the colonies, there was no free enterprise system. Some people still gets lazy, but they have consequences to deal with. If you don’t work, you don’t eat. It is sad that many people get lazy, and they are thrown out of their homes. Nevertheless there are also the people who do work very hard to provide food and shelter for themselves and their family. Another reason I am appreciated to be an American is for freedom of speech. Without freedom of speech we would not have a lot of the stuff we have today. People are able to speak freely of their judgments and not be afraid to. Many presidents, governors, and other people instigate a lot of ideas and plans from speaking their mind. There are so many more reasons why I love being an American. There is a lot of freedom that other countries do not have. Though I can argue with some things that the laws enforced, but there is a lot of other things I can love about this country.
