I am America

I am the faces of immigrants you see coming to America                                          

I am one of the most determined hardworking people you will ever meet

I am diversity

I am sacrifices

I am civil rights

I am democracy

I am the mixture of sweet potato pie, tortillas, pretzels, fried bread, rice and pasta of many shapes and sizes

When you look at me you see faces from those around the world

I am the modern day 21st century melting pot

I am light past, present, and future

I am freedom

I am laughter

I am pride

I am America
