United States doesn’t have a national language

People should do a little research before writing. The United States of America has no National Language. Yes, it is understood that most Americans speak American English. I am a proud Cajun and my family still speaks Cajun French.

I remember studying about my ancestors being punished for speaking French in public. I will not stand by and have others tell me we must speak English. The United States is a melting pot and is based on all cultures.
