Guam John F. Kennedy High School, Tamuning
"Our class discussed many things that represent America at the end of the 20th century. Living on an island and with many of our children coming from islands throughout the Pacific, the coconut tree holds much symbolism for us. The tree, like our country, is bountiful and life-giving. It has provided many people with shelter, food, clothing, utensils, and tools. It is strong like America, withstanding the battering of typhoons and tropical storms as it bends with the winds. Like our land, it is prolific and fertile, continually replenishing itself with new trees, even with disease and increased population. It is our symbol of life and hope.
"Additionally, our class felt that the symbols of America and some of our advancements still hold meaning and are representative of our country.
