In order to answer your question more effectively, I'd have to know what type of essay you are required to write.  There are many different kinds: Compare/Contrast, Argumentative, Persuasive, Expository, etc.  But for a generic answer I would have to go with telling you that your thesis statement should have words such as "is", "should" or "must" in it.  These words are strong enough to support statement about what you really think about the topic (although remember that saying "I think" isn't usually what you need to write.)

Examples:

The United States should rethink the illigal immigration issue.

The European Union must reconsider Greece's economic standing.

or

The welfare system in America is costing citizens billions of tax dollars each year.
