What it Means to be American

Being an American is a mindset, it's similar to being away from your house but still being at home. Home is not a particular location or building. Home is the place where you feel understood, valued, protected and loved. Home is where your heart is. Home is what God intended all of us to experience when he created us and placed us on this earth. Home is being an American!
