"An American" Written By Kenady Cleveland


We Americans live in the land of the free because we are the home of the brave. We stand here with free speech, free religion, free press, and the freedom to bear arms. Fortunately this list goes on; thanks to the brave men and women who put their own lives in the line of duty everyday. This country has great leaders from the President of the United States and the Vice President to the Generals and their Soldiers. Our beliefs may be very different across this nation, but the title still stands as One Country Under God. We all need to take a step back and look at the bigger picture.

For all those anti-war, peace is better, type of people…what good is it to bring home the soldiers now and stop the war? All those men and women who have died for this country; how do you think they would feel knowing they died for the failing country? The brave would no longer exist but this country would be gray, morning, and finally defeated. All of their hard work gone to shame. These men and women have taken a stand and said they would defend our country. What more can we ask for? They are over seas winning this war so you can be free and you are protesting against them?

For all of you who still have hope! God has a plan; just keep believing. Times might get scary, as some days have been in the past; but with faith in God, the President, and our nation, we can pull through. There is fixing to be a great change in our nation as we elect a new President and team of committed people; but be sure you know who and what your voting for. We need to stand together now! Fight the good fight, fight for what’s right, and what would make the past generations of men and women proud!
