What does America mean to you?

By Lyric S.
Phoenix, Arizona

America is like a huge music festival. One neighbor cranks salsa, another plays jazz. Down the street, you’ll hear mariachi, and my mom loves to blast hip-hop tunes. Some might think all this music is just noise, but I think it’s a sweet symphony! In America everyone brings their own special song, forming a harmony. We won’t always agree on the same music, but when we play it all together, it creates something beautiful. That’s what’s so awesome about America. We have the freedom to express ourselves however we want, even if it means playing our favorite songs really loud!
