  1. I, too, sing America. I am not made out to be a poet, but I do agree with everyone. We have all come to America for different reasons, and in very different ways. However even though we are not all the same, we are all here and living together now. I like how we can all celebrate our differences, but maybe, some day, we will be able to celebrate together.

  2. people from different background but in union togather. they all sing in America and union togather. they are in one family with same respect even they are live in a diverse world.
