  1. I’m Canadian. Some say that my country has no national identity, except for the phrase “We’re NOT american.” I don’t want to be defined by what I am not. And at any rate…the people of the USA are not the ONLY americans. Canadians, Mexicans, Central Americans and South Americans are all American, too. So really…I AM American.

  2. I am an American teacher. It’s not as easy as it sounds. It’s busy and tiring most days. Sometimes the students are funny and sometimes they’re not. Every morning we pledge to the flag. It reminds me why I chose this job and why I continue to live in this country.

  7. I grew up in a country where if you looked it, you were it. I’m dark skinned. I have black curly hair. My family is from Honduras.

    I was born here, but here I’m Honduran.
    I went on vacation to Honduras, and there I was called an American.

  8. You know the American romance seems contradictory at times, but the fiery beast of love has a way of melting pots. One lick of its steamy breath on your neck and the next thing you know you’re all hot and bothered. Then boom, just like that the bottoms have fallen off the pots and in the wet ash and molten metal are new forms compounding. Contracting until the new thing is cool enough to the touch. Watch out, kid, this place will burn you up and spit you out if you’re not careful.

  9. red white and blue

    patriotism does not equate with how much force you exert
    or how strong you are
    how much pain you inflict on others who don’t think or act like you

  13. I’m personally very proud to be American. Sure, every country has its negatives and faults, but we are very lucky in America, especially as women, to have the opportunity to attend college and make something of ourselves. A lot of people around the world do not get afforded the freedoms we have here, and I am thankful for that. I’m thankful for religious freedom and freedom of speech. And the ability to make a good life for myself. The American dream is to be able to live to our personal truth. And I’m happy to say that I can indeed do that.

  15. I’m proud to be an American, where at least I know I’m free
