I Am an American!

Today’s Plinky challenge is “Describe the country you live in to a foreigner who has never heard of it”… 

The Flag of the United States of America 

My country isn’t perfect. 

But that said, people can say what they want without being afraid of the government. We can worship or not worship any god we please. 

You can start from the bottom of the social ladder and work your way to the top. 

You can have an idea and literally make it become reality and all you need is persistence to make it happen. 

My country still notices suffering in the world and tries to help. 

My country says there is more to a person than their skin color, social standing, or the way they talk. 

My country says that the people decide what direction the government goes in. 

My country was founded on the blood of martyrs and visionaries. 

We stand for freedom, for equality, for justice and truth. 

My country is the United States of America
