How do I form this essay? I’m having trouble getting the ball rolling. Please help!?





  •   
The prompt is:In Everything's an Argument, Peter Ferrara states that "Americans are not a particular people from a particular place. They are the embodiment of the human spirit of freedom. Everyone who holds to that spirit, everywhere, is an American" (223).Write an essay in which you respond to this quote. State why you agree or disagree with Ferrara's definition of "American" as "freedom". How would you define the terms "freedom" and "American"?At some point in your essay, touch on the views that other countries might have about the term "American" and why.**I need to have a clear claim, reason, and warrant. The essay has to be about 5 pages, and I need to use 4 reliable sources. I'm having trouble deciding what I actually want to say in the essay. My response to the quote is not long enough, and I don't have any sources. If anyone has any ideas, opinions, or advice I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks :)

    Write an essay in which you respond to this quote. State why you agree or disagree with Ferrara’s definition of “American” as “freedom”. How would you define the terms “freedom” and “American”?BEGINNING:YOU ALWAYS REPEAT THE QUOTE GIVENIn Everything’s an Argument, Peter Ferrara states that “Americans are not a particular people from a particular place. They are the embodiment of the human spirit of freedom. Everyone who holds to that spirit, everywhere, is an American”.The term freedom can be defined as “being free, with independance” I agree with the previous statement I read out, by Peter Ferrara because as I said in my definition of Freedom, Americans do exude independance as we are a free people, who do things by choice not by force and recive consiqunces that was voted on by citizens of the country or reap the benefits given to us by the work we did. In America you do not go without freedom, there are no set rules on how females are allowed to dress or behave, this is a juxtaposition of females in the middle east. Females must dress to cover their hair ther neck arms wrists and legs and ankles, in some of the harsher areas they must wear a burqa which the only visable part of the body is their eyes.Muslims in this case may see the word American as insulting because of our female freedom of dress codes.YEAH so basically thats some idea if you want to take that rode, you may need to do somthing COMPLEATLY different so yeah, hope i did help in some way.goodluck.

    I strongly disagree with this statement about America equals freedom.We have been born into America; therefore, we are used to it. People in other countries, who have never been to America, have no idea what it is like here. Americans as a group, are annoying, whiny people. I was watching tv today, and Conan O’Brian got the crown to chant USA USA USA, with no real reason. It made me think about other people seeing this, thinking how idiotic we are. Because the group makes us all look stupid, the world doesn’t like us. The only reason we are free is because we kick other countries *sses to keep them from killing us. I define free with being unafraid of anything. If we had a low crime rate, able to do what ever we wanted to ourselves, be it drugs, or driving without a seat belt, we would be truly free.You are an American if you were born in this country. People in other countries are just like us. They may believe differently, but they are still human. Those are my feelings on this. Try looking on google for news articles. They tend to be reliable.
