[00:12.66]Passage Two
[00:15.12]The heart of the American calendar is July 4.
[00:18.66]Americans have celebrated this date
[00:21.10]as Independence Day since 1776.
[00:25.28]On this holiday, parades,
[00:27.47]picnics and fireworks create a festive atmosphere.
[00:32.02]Red, white and blue ribbons mimic the colors of
[00:35.34]the "stars and stripes".
[00:37.37]Patriotic speeches remind Americans of their heritage.
[00:41.43]But July 4 is more than a national holiday.
[00:44.71]It represents the heartbeat of America: freedom.
[00:48.61]Ask the average American,
[00:50.10]"What is freedom?"
[00:51.54]You will probably hear,
[00:53.07]"It's being able to do what I want to do."
[00:56.03]When Americans think of freedom,
[00:57.88]they see themselves more as individuals
[01:00.50]than as members of a family or social group.
[01:04.01]American-style democracy tries
[01:06.53]to protect individual rights.
[01:08.86]It also promises each person the freedom to make choices.
[01:13.07]People in other cultures may not understand this
[01:15.88]emphasis on individuals.
[01:18.48]In American culture,
[01:19.82]freedom also implies equality.
[01:22.79]The Declaration of Independence states
[01:25.12]that "all men are created equal".
[01:28.63]That does not mean equal in abilities or status.
[01:32.17]For Americans,
[01:33.26]equality refers to equal worth and equal opportunity.
[01:37.37]Every individual should have an equal chance
[01:39.84]to improve his life.
[01:41.63]True,
[01:42.26]America has not always lived up to that ideal.
[01:45.25]For many years, native Americans,
[01:47.61]African-Americans and immigrants have protested
[01:50.46]their unequal treatment.
[01:52.38]But,
[01:52.69]American culture still teaches
[01:54.54]that people can work hard and fulfill their dreams.
[01:57.61]Whether this idea is true or not,
[02:00.43]people hear rags-to-riches stories
[02:02.85]often enough to confirm it
[02:04.53]in the minds of many.
[02:06.29]Freedom arouses strong feelings for Americans.
[02:09.89]The idea of liberty binds people in the world
[02:12.53]together in this "Land of the Free".
[02:18.77]Now the passage will be read again.
[02:23.16]The heart of the American calendar is July 4.

[02:39.84]Red, white and blue ribbons mimic the colors of
[02:43.38]the "stars and stripes."
[02:45.35]Patriotic speeches remind Americans of their heritage.
