Roosevelt and Obama's welcoming spe4ech are inspiring and are closely related to each other in a topically manner. Both of which spoke about the subject “ freedom from fear.” our strongest emotion. Both also believed that everyone in the world has the right to this freedom no matter who they are. But the specific way that they viewed there current fears were different, Roosevelt was talking about the fear of economic downfall in the country wile Obama was speaking of physical threats from other countries.

Freedom of religion means that you have the right to worship as you wish. The meaning of having the right to a prompt, fair trial by jury is that everyone is innocent until proven guilty by a jury and state of law. The others speak for themselves. In order for American citizens to have all of these rights and freedoms our country had to go to war. Individuals that were Americans fought for our country to stay a free country.
His artillery unit was serving around Ypres in the flander part of Belgium when allied troops battled Germans around this region. In the second battle in Ypres he witnessed his friends death that led him to write “In Flanders Field”. McCrae’s poem is trying to infer that the dead did not die for no reason and that they hand the challenge to us to keep on fighting. The point of this poem is to show us that the dead soldiers are not really dead because they will always be alive in our memory for they did not die in vain. I think this poem represent all the people that gave their lives up for us, not only in Ypres but everywhere else, that they will live on forever in our memories.
Who’s American? Before reading the article Whose American?, My theory of who was American was the people that were born here and believed in the American values of equality for all. I had no issues with immigrants, as long as they chose to embrace the American beliefs and cultural, you can’t move to America for opportunity and not be willing to comprise so of you cultural and beliefs. Speaking the American language and fighting to succeed and overcome hardships, while helping others also achieve the same is American. The United States were built on innovation and many culturals bringing their experiences to the table for a common front of suceeeding.
Since we are all Americans, we are all equally blessed (or damned) by those things the world deems to be quintessentially "American." I heard a fellow on the radio this morning brand as "un-American" those persons who doubt the story of heroic passengers rising up on 9/11 to overpower hijackers to prevent their airplane being used as a flying bomb." This apparently suggests that one should at all times be "American," since being "un-American" is a terrible label to bear. But who is the arbiter of what is or isn't "American?" We all have our own opinions of what is and isn't "American," of course, including that radio DJ.
Further examined The Bill of Rights provides the freedom of speech in the First Amendment. There are limitations, and people need to realize that the Constitution does not guarantee free speech, and that free speech is given to the people as a privilege that can be taken at anytime. The freedom of speech is one of the most valuable and precious rights that is given to the citizens the original American colonies and continues as the first amendment in modern day United States Constitution. At the same time, it is one of the most abused rights by Americans. This is one of the protections that many Americans hold very dear and also value it because it will allow them to speak out against government policies that they do not agree with and also allow them to express there religious beliefs of their
The bills of rights affect every American life in many different ways. The first ten amendments written by our forefathers were created to set limitations on the power of the United States government protecting our rights of liberty and property. As an American citizen I am given the privilege of freedom, liberty, and equality as well as all American citizens. The bills establishes each American their rights and duties as one nation and that we are all to be treated equally. By giving you the divine rights that most people around the world lack to have you will see that we have a great advantage to express ourselves in many different ways.
In the past we have had marines that had the courage to jump on a grenade to save his other marines, the courage to go out and risk his life of freedom, courage to not kill an enemy but instead detain him and fix up his injuries when it is hard. For me, I know I have the courage to not take the shortcuts that might skip a step in order to fix the aircraft. Also, the courage to admit when I did make a mistake on over-torqueing a bolt on the aircraft. To me commitment is being able to finish what I started to my best abilities. Also as a marine NCO to help my subordinate marines when they need help.
- The flag is a common motif on decals for car windows, and clothing ornaments such as badges and lapel pins. - The symbolism of the Flag was thus interpreted by Washington: “We take the stars from Heaven, the red from our mother country, separating it by white stripes, thus showing that we have separated from her, and the white stripes shall go down to posterity representing Liberty.” - The United States Flag is unique in the deep and noble significance of its message to the entire world, a message of national independence, of individual liberty, of idealism and of
Lasheena Jackson English –Comp 101-25 Midterm “Liberators” In my opinion I believe that the Occupy Wall Street protesters deserve the appellation liberator. The protestors are liberators because there goal was to free American citizens from the current state of the American condition. Even though the protestors were not as organize as they should have been, it is no denying that they was able to spark a movement that quickly expanded across the nation. Addressing these people as occupiers to me is disrespectful because it downsizes all of their efforts to bring awareness to the nation’s current state. Occupy Wall Street protesters were a group of brave individuals who took a stand on the issues that they believed in, they should never be addressed as occupiers.
