Critical Thinking

Before At 11 years old, I didn’t think

Before listening to the “American Exceptionalism”
videos, I had to research the topic for my better understanding. From my
understanding, I do think America is exceptional. America has more
opportunities than most countries. I use to live in Germany where the place I
lived, didn’t have many opportunities for colleges unless I lived in a bigger
city. Everyone I knew in my German school thought I was extremely lucky to live
in a country where dreams come true. At 11 years old, I didn’t think much of
how being American was the greatest thing ever. When I moved back at the age of
15, I knew how being an American made me exceptional.

            I
think exceptionalism applies to the United States because it is both unique and
special from our many ancestries to the growth of the United States from social
economic to the political characteristics. Throughout the many generations the
United States has shown exceptionalism through liberty and freedom of
opportunity than any other nation in the world. The United States is the world’s
oldest constitutional nation that the land which became the United States was
settled by people seeking freedom of thought, speech and religion and who
created a country which symbolizes and values. The United States was founded by
people who were committed to individual liberty and who designed a system that arranged
our political freedom above governmental authority.  The United States saved Europe and the world
from two catastrophic world wars then saved humanity from nuclear holocaust by
maintaining peace through strength during the cold war than by winning the Cold
War. The United States is an electromagnet full of students from around the
world, who want to come to America and attend colleges. So many people wanted
to emigrate to the United States because its customary of living has the
highest and its freedom of opportunities is overflowing with possibilities.
