built a home—just a log cabin. It was not a large
or magnificent structure but it made a beautiful
home because it was in a free country. His sons
grew old and their sons farmed the land; I grew
up on that farm and a feeling for the soil was
strong in my bones. My greatest dream is that
perhaps my sons will want to farm this land after
I speak for Democracy because I feel assured
that this land will belong to me and my sons as
long as we choose to own it.
It is a great feeling to know that just a little
corner of this earth is mine. I don t think that
any king ever felt mightier than I when I go to
the polls to vote for the leaders of my country
and talk with my friends about what I can do with
my bit of earth. This is life—this is America!

high school student.
My current ambition is to graduate with my
classmates in June. I work toward this with a
feeling that the decision is mine. Once I choose
to do something and work to accomplish it, my
government will not say, "No! You can’t, because
your father isn’t a great general or statesman.
You must train to fight.’’
There are millions of high school students just
like me, all through the United States and all of
us dream of receiving that coveted diploma on
graduation day, and, at the same time, we feel
grateful that we have been afforded twelve years
of training to prepare us for a life as free Ameri
