What America Means To Me What America Means To Me To me, America is like a box of crayons. If we do not use them all, the picture is not complete. In case one of those crayons becomes worn down–just sharpen it. There have been problems that we faced with where our country has worn. However, we have always bounced back and not only sharpened our crayon, but sharpened our image as well.
We conquered such problems as the Great Depression, segregation, the Revolutionary War, and slavery. These are examples of problems that some countries still cannot defeat. There are also problems happening right now that are wearing us down as a country Such things as our national debt, social security, and politicians and their scandals. We are nevertheless, looking for ways to solve these problems. There are three essential colors that should be included in the picture. They are red, white, and blue.
To me, they represent three things we take for granted every day. They are freedom, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. They are three essential things in American life that attract people to our country, that make our picture stand out among the rest. That is why America is like a box of crayons. America is about diversity and color. Without it, we would be like every other nation.
