My favorite book is The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I know, I know, it sounds idiotic but while reading it, I really opened my eyes about the government and how it could be. While reading, I thought about my life and how free I am. What if I lived in that world? I wouldn’t be able to make most of the choices that I make today and daily. I wouldn’t be able to speak freely; I wouldn’t be able to provide for myself let alone my families. I realized how lucky I am to live in America and how great a nation it truly is.
Reading about those people how they died and why, I grasped that I live a very lenient country and I am proud of that. I am proud to call myself an American.
