How I can Serve My Country
Everyone loves his motherland and likes to serve it. But very few people know how best they can do so. I have various choices before me. If I want more exciting work, I may join the Army, the Air Force of the Navy. By doing so I shall be strengthen the defence of the country. I may thus get a chance to lay down my life for the sake of the country. No service can be greater than the sacrifice of my life for the protection of our freedom. A place among the immortals is assured into those who die for the defence of the country.
Less glorious,l but not less important is the service to the country done by a teacher or a control or a farmer or a worker. Every man in his station of life can serve his country doing his duty to the best of his ability So whatever be my occupation in life. I c can serve my country by doing my duty well.
However, I am only a student at present. How can I serve my country best as a student? I can serve my country in many ways. I am student of science and therefore I should prepare myself to become a true scientist. Our country needs a number of scientists. By preparing myself to become a scientist I can do a very useful service to the country. Secondly, being the son of a shop keeper I can explain to my father the need to hold the price line. I f I can bring him round it will be not nor mean service to the country. Thirdly, I own a house which has a garden around it. I can grow more vegetables in my kitchen garden thus add my mite towards the solution of the food problem. Along with this at the end of the months at the end of the month and thus can serve the country by saving some food.
Lastly, I can serve the country by saving every paisa that I can. Little drops of water make up an ocean. Even the savings of school body like me make the country rich and strong, for the paisa will become rupees and the rupees in turn, will turn into factories and the factories will turn out goods and gun which will keep away all our foes viz. Poverty Peking and Pakistan.

New Way of Thinking
My hope for this country is that its people (citizens or not) realize that only by working together to solve problems can we improve our future. Following segregated agendas only segregates the community.
West Grove, Pennsylvania
Of the long list of hopes that I have for the United States of America, my most important is for people to respect themselves. If we learn to respect ourselves, we will respect our peers, neighbors, environment, and streets. External appreciation begins with an internal appreciation of oneself.

That we all strive to raise honest children; support the troops; pinch a few pennies so we can give some of them away; think and act for seventh-generation sustainability; vote and elect a president who will do the right thing and make the hard decisions; teach our children to pursue their dreams, not dollar signs, because true happiness is not dependent on income; and try to follow our own advice.
Las Vegas, Nevada
I hope America will become a safer, more respectful and friendly country again. We’ve lost the sense of community in this ultra-independent era. If people were more connected and caring, if families were stronger, if we all valued people, we would see so many current problems disappear.
Claremont, New Hampshire
That we will remember, return to, and live by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Our freedom is precious; it is what our soldiers fight for and die protecting. It should never easily or willingly be surrendered for an illusion of safety. Our Founding Fathers did not exchange freedom for security. Neither should we.

That more people take accountability for their choices in life and stop relying on others to solve their problems. This country is still the land of opportunity, but you may have to get out of your comfort zone to make a better life for yourself.
I hope that this country can provide the same sense of security that I was given as a child. I want my children’s biggest worry to be if they will pass a test in school, not if the building will still be standing because of a world war.
Bronx, New York
I’d love to see an end to the inequality between the haves and the have-nots. Too many have so little, while there are others who have enough to share. It’s such a simple thing: sharing what you have with others.
Kernersville, North Carolina
I hope the next president will be better at diplomacy and restore the worldwide respect we have lost during the current administration. Choosing war over other options is an ancient and barbaric tactic. It’s time we elected someone with better ideas and the courage to meet with world leaders or enforce economic sanctions or introduce incentives to buy American-made products.
Better health care for middle- and lower-class families. Better public transit to reduce dependency on foreign oil. Better public schools to prepare our future leaders.
My hope for our country is that it returns to a place where the American Dream can be obtained. I think our current poor economy and health-care issues are going to take a negative toll on our children. My hope is that the best candidate does win the presidential election. I hope we don’t give up emotionally as a nation and we continue to work toward making things better for everyone.

While I realize this is a word that’s being thrown around a lot these days, I hope for change. Here in Michigan the poverty level has risen, while the median income has gone down; every day it seems like more stores go out of business and more homes go up for sale. I want my children to grow up being proud to be from Michigan, and I don’t want them to have to leave to find good jobs and good places to live and raise their families. Overall I want to see the gap between the haves and the have-nots close. I want a good education to be affordable and available to everyone, and I want to see people make more changes toward being green: If we don’t do it for ourselves, let’s do it for our children. I don’t want my children to grow up in a world where the only polar bears and gorillas are in zoos.
That the November elections will herald the start of a new era in the United States.
