Being an American citizen means being free to anything you want to be.
American citizens have freedom of religion, freedom of speech, we have freedom! Wealso have the Bill of Rights, which includes the 10 amendments. One of the amendmentsis Amendment 3, which says; no soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house,without the consent of the owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed bylaw. In many other countries, soldiers can be quartered in your house without yourconsent.
We have the strongest military. Americans are not obligated to fight for their country,but they choose to. They put their life on the line to fight for their country. That showsthat we have a proud nation.
September 11, 2001 was the day our country was changed. There was an attackin New York. The twin towers were completely destroyed. About four planes werehijacked by terrorist and crashed into different areas of the United States.
Innocentpeople were killed and injured. The attack affected many people’s lives. Thousands ofpeople went to work that morning and did not come home that night.
The economy has dropped, along with many other things as an affect of theattack. The country has become stricter. In airports, it may take hours to get on theplane. They have become stricter with baggage checks. People are no longer able topark in front of the airport. It has become a hassle for many travelers. The border andmilitary bases also have become stricter.
Since the attack on September 11, most may feel a little different towards Muslims.
Some believe that most of the Muslims agree and support Bin Ladin. This may not betrue.
