Being a Good Citizen
By Phyllis Naegeli
1 What is a citizen? If you were born in the United States, you are a citizen. That means you are a member of our country. Sometimes people who are not born here want to become citizens. They do this by asking the government to make them a citizen. This is called naturalization.
2 As a citizen you have special privileges called rights. The government protects those rights. In our country, you have the right to free speech. You also have the right to choose a religion. In America, the press is free to tell you what is happening in the world. The Bill of Rights lists the freedoms of its citizens. These rights are very important. Many people in the world do not have the freedoms that we do.
