All this week, in honor of Independence Day, we're airing a series of reports titled My America. We'll be speaking to leading figures in politics, culture, media and the arts—and we're asking what being American means to them. We've also had quite a few listeners—as well as our producers and hosts—weigh in!

Takeaway contributor Ibrahim Abdul-Matin says his family history of shared sacrifice and hard work is what being American means to him.
