American Dream (Period: 3-4 O.S.B.)
Achieving aspirations and being happy in all is the dream.
Life...Liberty...Pursuit of Happiness
America was known as the land of opportunity; it was the place to come for a new start, a clean slate. Immigrants from all over the world flocked to America beginning in the 1800s, all searching for land, new opportunities, and a fresh start. Thus, this begs the question: does the American Dream still exist today? Now gracing the headlines of newspapers and online news sites around the world, the United States seems to be getting more publicity for its struggling economy and unhappy political protestors than its “endless opportunities.” There is no doubt America is still very much the land of opportunity, and America takes great pride in that. Although it has changed and developed with time, the American Dream is alive and well, thriving in the land of opportunity. Homeland security, society disaster managements, communication; the teaching equalities and more can all be improved. "Anyone here who want to work can work. Our national self-understanding is supported by anecdotes." America has done good on keeping liberty and are free to pursue happiness. In fact, the United States had enjoyed an extended period of economic expansion.
