Last week we asked you what it means to be an American. We received a great response. Here are some of the letters and comments. We’ll publish more in the coming days.
Being American means being able to exercise my freedom of speech and religion without being judged.
It means showing respect for others, following the laws that our forefathers established and having moral standards to follow.
To me, it means I have the freedom to choose what I want to do with my life, to go wherever I want, to eat whatever I want, but still follow rules. I am proud to be an American. America today is going downhill with the bullying, profanity, lack of respect and morality. Where do we draw the line? I want my America back.
