Being an American

We've been talking a lot about the rights of citizens of the United States. The government is there to serve the citizens. It protects us and keeps order. As citizens, we play an active part in our government. We are expected to carry out our duties and responsibilities.

Duties: Things the law requires us to do 
Responsibilities: Things we should do

Carrying out our duties and responsibilities helps us take part in ensuring that we have a good government and that our rights are always upheld.
