In this world, there are over 4,200 religions. From Buddhism, to Islam, to Christianity, as US citizens, we have the right to choose whatever religion we find fit for us.

Religion should be someone’s personal choice and belief, and no one else should be able to decide someone else’s religion. I am thankful for this freedom in my country.
“I believe in an America where millions of Americans believe in an America. That’s the America, millions of Americans believe in. That’s the America I love.” -Romney Because of all of the freedoms our country is built on; we are able to preserve what makes America, America. The America that I believe
