America is a great country like no other. People from all over the world come to America to not only become better people but to also explore wonderful opportunities only available in the land of the free. In my piece the tree represents America and how tall and mighty we stand among others. The leaves represent all the different Americans that have settled and thrived, throughout many ages, in America itself. Finally the beautiful and exotic birds represent the many unique races and ethnicities that make up the diversity that America has become known for. These "birds¿ migrate from oceans away just to sit on the tree that has the power to unite one and all into a country of incredible variety. America truly is one of kind and spectacular country.
