In most stories an object can be explained to the reader if the writer uses a symbol to represent it. The flag for the United States is a symbolism of America; it contains fifty stars to represent the fifty states that we have. It also has thirteen horizontal stripes to represent the thirteen colonies. Everything in the world represents a thing; every object or thing has a symbol to it. For instance being a United States American citizen symbols you can live in the United States of America and you are an American citizen, which means you were born here in the U.S. If you weren’t you couldn’t be able to live in the United States. A bald eagle roams free without any worries, strong, independent, and fearless, this is why it symbols the United States of America. The U.S. symbolizes freedom.

If you’re White you came from a Caucasian family. Your race represents you and your family.
