America: Who We Are and Where We Lie Globally

America existed since the beginning of time. It was there even before the birth of Christopher Columbus, one of the widely read explorers. In spite of this, it is important to state that prior to European explorations, no one knew about America. The fact that it was an unknown land did not mean that it was void. It only implies that European explorers were slack in discovering it. Before its discovery by those from the west, America was already an occupied land. Italian navigator, Vespucci, offered sufficient proof that Columbus did not discover America. Instead, America first housed descendants of Asia, who according to geography, arrived through the Bering Strait (Lee 122). Through European explorations, America became a diverse nation, housing virtually all tribes, languages, and races globally. In view of the above, if anyone were to ask who we are or where we lie globally, the answer would be that America is an amalgamation of all nations on the earth.
