Have you ever thought about what makes America great?

Some of the reasons why I feel America is great are: the people, freedom, and the military. They all help in some way to make America great.

The people is one thing that makes America great. ‘The people dreamed this country, the people built this country , and it’s people who are making America great ’ said Donald Trump. He is right about how the people built this country. We all helped in some way to help America be great. People change the united states all the time in good ways. Some people helped by being kind. Others helped by picking up the environment. Everyone says that one person can make a change and they are right. Everyone can make a difference in the United States and even the world. The military helps protect the people of the United States.

The military helps a lot with the protection of the United States. They keep us away from the danger. They risk their lives for us and they go to other countries and fight in wars. Some of the military come back with injuries that will affect them for the rest of their lives. That is what they do to protect us from other countries. The military also helps protect the freedoms of America.

The freedom can help us stay true to our religion. People from other countries come to America because they have the freedom to worship the religion of their choice. They are free to come to this country and have their beliefs respected. Another freedom is our freedom of speech. We can speak what is on our minds because of this freedom. We can have an opinion and make our own decisions. Our freedoms give us endless possibilities in the choices we make and the path we take.

The country has a lot of reasons that make it great! The people, the military and our freedoms have made our country what it is today. We should never take our freedoms or our country for granted. This country is OUR HOME!
