Hier ist mein Versuch(Bitte nicht auf rechtschreibung achten nur vllt auf grammatik. Am besten den Inhalt korrigieren)
I'd like to present The patriotic song „God Bless the USA“ is written by Lee Greenwood and was released on May the 21th, 1984. The song has a length of 3 minutes and 9 seconds and deals with an unnamed man who sings about what he would do if he loseses everything he has and has to start again from scratch.
would start over in the USA because his freedom is guaranteed in the USA. remembers how others died to secure this freedom declares that if he is ever called upon to defend the USA today, he will gladly stand up and fight because he loves the country.
Lee Greenwood is a country music artist. Wrote in response to his feelings about the shooting down of Korean Air Lines Flight 007 wanted to write a song about America because he wanted America become more united. song is reflection of his pride to be American. He mentions four cities that are for him the corners of the USA
america is a land of freedom and boundless possubilities You have be (unreflective) patriotic and defend your country. American dream god bless the USA (god choosen and by the grace of god can reach anything)
America land of freedom. With lines like …. The song wants to reinforce unreflective patriotism. With lines like … he makes an allusion to american dream and that the dream tepeats god bless the usa. Which means that americans are choosen from god.
I think that this song can be generally regarded as a symbol for America because the message of the song is very identical with the ideals of america.
representation of the emotions of MAJORITY OF AMERICANS . America wants to be an land of freedom, with a freedom of speech, where you can pursue a dream regardless of your circumstanzas.
the song raised its popularity after terrorist attacks =>patriot act(Bereitstellung geeigneter Instrumente um Terrorismus aufzuhalten und zu blockieren) Widerspruch
unreflective patriotism to which Greenwood refers. We need the reflective type of patriotism that directs us to challenge the reckless military adventures to which our elected leaders send our young men and women
The song also contributes to the fetishizing of military service which exacerbates the divide between soldiers and civilians. Criticism of the military adventure attaches to a criticism of the citizen-soldier. War becomes a fact of life
Bis auf einige Rechtschreibfehler findet ich es eigendlich recht ausführlich und gut geschrieben.
