Lee GreenwoodBack

Someone once said Im not easily defeated. Lee Greenwood is an American country music artist and still lives on today to inspire humanity. Greenwood was born on October 27, 1942 on a farm near Sacramento, California. When he was fourteen years of age he could play the saxophone by himself and many other instruments which showed his various talents as a young star. Lee learned on how to become a showman when Del Reeves hired him to play the saxophone. Living in Las Vegas trained him to become a song writer by singing in the lounges at night. Greenwood finally became big time when McFadden happened to be his manager and conveyed him to the MCA Records. One of his first hit songs "It Turns Me Inside Out," ascended into the country Top 20. Lee Greenwood met a young woman from Nashville and married her in 1992. Greenwood was in high demand for performing after the terrorist attack on September 11 to sing his most famous song God Bless the USA. Greenwood still continues to tour and give concerts today because he is an American dream to us all.

Id worked for all my life HyperboleBackHyperbole is a figure of speech with exaggeration. Some people work so hard to be somewhat of a high status in their life time, but sometimes things can go wrong. This indicates the recession that the world has been going through for the past couple of years. The effects of the recession are still reverberating throughout America. Many Americans have lost their jobs due to this even if they have worked so diligently throughout their lives.

Id thank my lucky stars What do the stars on the American Flag symbolize? BackThe American Flag is used as a symbol for the United States. Some people just take the American Flag as the thirteen stripes that represent the thirteen colonies. They could also think that its fifty stars symbolize the fifty current states. This flag is more than stripes and stars. The flag signifies democracy and freedom. The stars on the American Flag stand for heaven. This is when America was being assembled and people started to become hopeful of the future.

Who gave that right to meWhat rights to American citizens have? BackThe rights that we have given to us by our ancestors are very apparent. The rights we have as Americans are for everyone regardless of race, religion, sex. In the United States Constitution Amendment fourteen was ratified in 1868 and shows the citizens rights. It basically defines citizenship and equal protection among Americans.

And I'm proud to be and American,where at least I know I'm free.And I wont forget the men who died,who gave that right to me.

And I gladly stand up,next to you and defend her still today.Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land,God bless the USA. Lyrics ContinuedWorks Cited

And Im proud to be an AmericanWhat does it mean to be an American?BackAfter September eleventh, to be an American meant Patriotism, Nationalism, and American Identity. To be an American means freedom. As a citizen of the United States, the capability to convey your own ideas is one of the most supreme freedoms we have. But, to me it indicates to be proud that I live in the United States of America.
