Americans are a breed of people unlike any other, with a sense of optimism and perseverance in the face of adversity that is incredible. The Revolutionary War showed the true courage and passion that Americans have for their country and their independence. We bow to no one and always try to do what is right. Americans believe that each man or woman is responsible for their own life, and that they have the ability to succeed if they are willing to work hard and push through. The can do spirit that Americans typically have allow them to win even when the odds are stacked against them, and everything that being an American means is what makes the country so great.
