As a people Americans are united with a sense of pride for our country. All Americans should be proud of what the United States has accomplished. Our country has become a major influence to other countries. It is rising to be one of the most developed, wealthy, and most advanced in the world. Another quality that unites all Americans is its unforgettable and monumental past. Monuments, like the Lincoln Memorial, federal holidays such as the 4th of July, and historical landmarks, like war battlefields, are just some locations of a time or place that all Americans can share. These places and memories remind Americans of the struggle our country endured to gain freedom and the sacrifices important heroes made for the country. Another monumental thing in the past was the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the world trade center buildings.
The attack on the World Trade Centers is just one of many gruesome and sad, mourning days in American history, it will never be forgotten, neither will the people who died. These reminders should make all Americans proud of their heritage and remember that some people dont agree with the society or the United States at all. The history of the United States should be a vital requirement for all Americans to discover. I think it is very important that all Americans study the history of their country because many important and altering events happened centuries of years before we were born. All Americans should be reminded of what our country and its people have endured. After all the conditions we live in today are the effects of our past. That is what being an American means. To be loyal and grateful for the freedom you have and the democracy, that many other countries dont have.
