What do you think makes up our USA?
What exactly does the United States of America mean to you?
Even after all these years, all these wars, and all the sacrifices millions of people have endured; a lot of people still see the USA as the “white” land.
It is very hard for me to understand this way of thinking because I am completely opposite.
My views: America is the land of the free. The land where all cultures blend together and become one. People from all different countries decided to move here and all of them have a “role” in this American society. We all, together, make this the United States of America.
Who plays on the US soccer teams? Who plays on the US basketball teams? Who plays on the US Olympic? Who plays on the US football teams? Who seats in the US Mayor’s offices? Who sits on the US Senate? Who is currently the US president??? I could go on and on…
The answer: Every kind of walk of life. Every type of race/religion makes up the United States. It is not just one ethnicity anymore. It is tons of different ones. It is not just one type of people. It is many different kinds.
This is one of the things that make the USA much greater than other countries. No other country is so diverse, so unique, and so amazing.
And everyone needs to embrace this current way of life. Out with the old ways of thinking and see the truth of what exactly makes up the United States of America.
I took this picture while walking with my family. A peaceful and beautiful place.
Until next time,
