United States of America consists of 50 states and a federal jurisdiction zone, whose area ranks forth and population ranks third in the world. As far as I can see, America is symbolic of many aspects such as knowledge, information technology, open-minded and fast food culture and so on. 美国是由五十个州和一个联邦管辖区组成。美国的面积是全世界第一大,美国的人口在全世界排名第三。据我所知,美国的经济 信息技术和科技,在全世界都是排名第一的。

On one hand, America is paradise. 一方面 美国是天堂

America represents development. America, with only a short history of 300 years, is one of the most developed countries in the world. As is known to us, development is the absolute principle. During the several hundred years, the economic development of America is at an amazing speed. According to the data of 2011, its GDP ranked the first in the world. Currently, America, with the market economy highly developed, has kept its place as the world’s largest economy for many years.

美国是全世界最发达的国家,美国只有短短三百年的历史,但是却是世界上最发达的国家,在过去的几百年中,美国的发展速度非常快。并且,多年来,一直保持着世界经济大国的地位。

America represents science and technology. Typically, Silicon Valley is the leader of IT industry in America even in the world, which gathers all high technology companies. What’s more, America gathers many world-class universities, such as Harvard, Yale, and Stanford, which continuously offer numerous highly skilled workers and information annually.

美国的科技也非常发达,美国的硅谷是现在全球IT行业的领导者,它汇集了全球所有的高科技公司。另外美国还有世界一流的大学,哈佛 斯坦福和耶鲁。每年都会给美国提供大量的高科技人才。

America represents open-minded. Due to its short history, people in America have not been affected by feudalism, superstition and so on. What’s more, most citizens in America are immigrants from different countries. Thus, collisions from different cultures and minds bring an open-minded America.

美国的思想也非常开明,因为美国历史非常短,没有受到封建思想的影响。美国的人都是来自各个国家的移民,不同国家的人的思想在这里碰撞,给美国带来了非常开明和开发的思想。

On the other hand, America is also hell.

America is symbolic of fast food culture. Fast food is the term given to food that can be prepared and served very quickly but with high calories and high fat. Its input to the world has made great changes on daily diet. Nowadays, KFC, MacDonald, Pizza hut can be seen everywhere. Delicious as it is, it belongs to junk food and brings kinds of diseases such as obesity and malnutrition.

America is symbolic of un-safety as well. Gun violence has been a heated social issue in America. In America, gun can be held lawfully. It may include actions of self-defense, actions of law enforcement, or the safe lawful use of firearms for sport, hunting, and target practice. Most young people hold guns in daily life. Annually, due to the lawful gun possession, hundreds of people are killed by shooting.

America represents hegemonism, which has posed a huge threat to the world. America owns the most advanced weapons and military powers in the world. Instead of guarding their country, America uses them to plunder crude oil from other countries. Besides, in order to solve its financial crisis, America deliberates to provoke wars among other countries, thus to sell its weapons to them and then get money from them. Hegemonism in America has brought a series of potential dangers to the world.

Given the above aspects, in my opinion, America is a nation to learn advanced skills, a nation to travel to open up our eyes, a nation to realize our dream, but it is also a nation to push unhealthy fast food culture and a nation to carry out hegemonism.
