I consider myself a “real” American, although I was not born here. After I became a permanent resident, I made a rational choice to become an American. Unlike most, I do not owe my American citizenship to an accident of birth. I am not an “accidental” American. I chose to become an American citizen for two fundamental reasons: The written Bill of Rights; and The constitutional separation of church and state. I believe that the above rights are absolutely necessa ry for a life worth living in any country. America is unique in framing these rights for the whole world to follow. I deeply regret that some “accidental” Americans do not appreciate these rights, and many are trying to squash them. Without these rights, Unites States will be just another country in a continent called America.
