This Land Was Made for You and Me

We live in one of the greatest countries to ever exist in the world. The American patriot is the backbone of this nation. One of those patriots is Nathanial Bischoff, a senior here at American Heritage. “ I feel like God is a co-founder of this country… this is the country that the restored gospel was established in I feel like it was prepared for that purpose… ”  We are lucky enough to go to a school that supports and represents many aspects of patriotism. What makes the United States so great is the people and their beliefs. The fact that people living here can have such diverse beliefs and also be free to express those beliefs.

 However, in this country lie more than a few problems. With many riots and protests occurring recently, people can’t help but notice flaws in this nation that we have built. But one key aspect that this country was built upon was unity, and that’s the solution to these problems. As Abraham Lincoln said, “ America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we lose our freedoms it will be because we have destroyed ourselves from within.” Patriotism is what brings us together. In this day and age, we need a strong sense of patriotism.
