Reflection on place and culture

Here in the USA we have many different cultures and ways of life here. As americans we are usually very prideful about our country and defend our rights that were signed on that day of 1776 were our decloration of independence was signed. The biggest religion in the USA is Christianity. Many Americans here including me are Christians. However many other religions can be fond here such as catholic, Islamic, jewish, even pastafarian. Me personally love the fact that we are a free country. We have men and women that fight for our rights when we are snuggled in a warm bed, or watching TV. They stand on the front lines and put their lives on it so we can enjoy the things we have here. We have rights to speak, to bear arms ( Which is my favorite ), even the right to vote. All this is why im proud to call myself an American.
However there are some things that have been disappointing me. One being all the hate groups coming about. Black lives matter is one of them. I don't see why you would want to separate yourself from another skin color just because your ancenstors may have been treated wrong. ALL lives matter. And another thing that really disappoints me is the kneeling down or sitting during our national anthem. I respect your right to do it but I don't respect your reasoning. To dishonor the Men and Women who give you that right just because you believe that black lives are far more important than others, is completely unacceptable.
