Even though I am Hispanic I do consider myself an American because I was obviously born her in Texas. My parents are from Mexico and I have visited their land and it makes me grateful that they brought me to this country full of opportunities. I am not saying that I do not like where they are from because I do like to visit but it is not the U.S. When I go to Mexico I notice how different the streets are. It is a Pueblo that has many people on the streets and wearing old clothes but the people there are more together for people that do not have many opportunities to get out of poverty. As an American we have rights here that benefits everyone who takes advantage of them. Like for example: I work for the Walmart Distribution Center and some of the benefits I have are medical, dental, stock purchase and 401K. I have had incidents where I needed to go to the doctor and having insurance helps so much. I barely have to pay out of pocket. Dental is important because I like to take care of my teeth. As an American I have to right to go to college after high school. There are not a lot of people that embrace this opportunity. They rather work at fast food places, construction and other low paying jobs. There are scholarships and grants available for the taking to help pay for school. A chance to make 75k a year instead of 30k? Yea thank you I want to live the American dream and have a wife with kids, nice cars, a beautiful home and buy anything else that I would like. Being an American means the world to me because of all of the opportunities that are here for the taking. I am truly blessed to be born here America.
