TOEFL Essay - icons monumentalized in my nation

Q. What is your country's most iconic monument?

National parties and building fervor often decide that it is best to target and concentrate feverishness into statues and edifices. These signify a greatness of the past in a way that buildings without statues and people fail to do. Many of these experiments in rock take on an iconic nature. We sit in Lincoln's lap for descend the Eiffel Tower stairs until our legs turn into jelly because these feats mean something more than a photograph. However, the nature of current American thought is far from establishing icons out of concrete. We have icons, but these are more abstract than a statue whose lap you find yourself seated in.

The first abstraction that we worship is this idea of a constitution, a document that rules everyone. Because files cannot rule with an iron fist, a piece of paper establishes a government that is moderate and rational. There are clear cut rules, and these rules may be changed though through difficult maneuverings, to ensure that each household doesn't simply adopt a different constitution. Even though my father said that families aren't democratic, he was still being unconstitutional when he said that.

We are happy to decide what others can do. This is why our laws are iconic. We happy people dismantling others' concrete know and love the documents to the extent that we hide them in glass. We respect glass, since breaking it spells almost mutual harm and in an embarrassing way. He or she with cuts on their hands might escape judgment or prosecution; however, their shredded mitts cannot deny that they attempted to get a discount from a document whose value isn't material. Our icons aren't things we can buy. This is especially important in a land where I cannot be untouchable. The law is untouchable. By law I don't mean police.
