No matter who you are or where you come from, America provides a remarkably good life for those who are willing to work for it.

America is, and always will be, the land of opportunity and freedom; America never stopped being great.

“I love this country and would not want to live anywhere else, my father and brother both served in the army and we are proud to be Americans,” said student Adam Bradford.

Not only is America full of opportunity and cultural diversity, but it also has one of the best educational systems. 

There is a wide variety of schools and programs located throughout the U.S. for Americans and international students to choose from.

The educational system that the U.S. provides to its people is arranged with an astonishing level of equality.

The number one factor that puts our educational system above all others is the fact that it allows free access for all kids to receive an education, according to

In other countries, there are limitations for people who want to attend school such as; transportation issues, insufficient funds, unable to pay for books and uniforms or they do not live close enough to attend.

“America has a great economy, I like the American people they are polite and well mannered and know how to communicate well with others,” said international student Bo Zhao.

I agree with Zhao, America’s economy is one of a kind; it gives people the chance to follow their dreams whatever they may be and the ability to live comfortably.

In the U.S., businesses can run efficiently without a high degree of corruption consuming them.

Many businesses overseas are easily taken over and exploited due to corruption.

Even though our political parties have their differences, our political stability is what keeps the American economy and markets operating smoothly, according to

“People have the freedom to be whatever they want here, economic mobility is good in the U.S., I believe that if you work hard you can achieve whatever economic mobility you want,” said student Angel Valencia.

In addition to a great economy, America has also succeeded further than any other country in regards to establishing equality of rights, according to

While there is always room to improve equal rights, the U.S. has made great strides in making sure to implement policies that give legal inclination when it comes to jobs and school admission to minorities.

Equality of rights goes hand in hand with the best quality this country possesses, and that is freedom of speech.

I often think some of us take for granted just how lucky we are to be able to speak our mind and address issues that we are passionate about or unsatisfied with.

In other countries, if you protest or publicly comment on something you disagree with, you are subject to receive severe backlash or punishment.

We are lucky that our country respects our right to freedom of speech and because we are able to do so, we should use this privilege to come together and unify the American people.
