The American Dream can be defined as-” a happy way of living that is thought of by many Americans as something that can be achieved by anyone in the U.S especially by working hard and becoming successful” (Merriam Webster Learner’s Dictionary).
To begin with, the American Dream is the ideal that every United States citizen should have an equal opportunity to achieve success. In other words many people believe that the American Dream is possible to achieve, as to the opposite believe that it is very unlikely to achieve success. In my thoughts I believe that the American Dream is possible because if we work hard, believe in ourselves, and help one another to achieve the key of success we will eventually achieve the Dream we wished upon. Achieving something like the American Dream will soon grant you the resources or opportunities you will need in life.
Former President Barack Obama rose to the national prominence after giving a speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. He stated “…I am my brothers keeper, I am my sister’s keeper that makes this country work”(Paragraph 8). Barack Obama is explicitly saying that we as U.S citizens should be there for eachother even though we might not be the same skin color or race. The author also states that ” there’s not black America and white America and Latino America and Asian America; there’s the United States of America” (paragraph 9). President Obama wants to make a point in achieving this American Dream by putting yourself out there to take a stand and assist other individuals to do the same. In the end he wants us to understand what he wants for us to do as a U.S citizen to accomplish our American Dream.
