American dream

Tassel-Cockatoo high school, your influence and work with today’s youth is extremely important and vital. The imprints we leave upon these freshmen are that of something which will carry on throughout their years, surpassing high school. Being a graduate of Tassel-Cockatoo, this school district is very dear to me and I also understand and am able to see the technology slowly taking over this younger generation’s attention.

As much as you are around and working with the youth of our school, I’m sure you understand the importance of trying to stray youth from technology and push them into the direction of nature. I am writing this letter to you due to the fact that I believe the youth of today are much more dependent on the technology that is being developed and experiencing nature through a movie or a screen that they have become numb to the natural beauty of the world and what nature has to offer.

As these freshmen begin to enter their first four years of high school, the technology is already incredible. I propose that each teacher read the essay titled “A life of the senses” with their 9th grade students so that they may have an understanding of the affects of technology, and begin to appreciate nature sooner rather than later. This particular essay would be beneficial, not only to the young students but to the teachers reading it as well. The author Richard Loop has coined a term “cultural autism” which is one of my fears for the youth today.

The technology e have grown so accustomed to makes It second nature to Google something rather than to experience it or learn It on your own. Much of this generation’s youth has become so adapt to indoor field trips to the woods, at the click of a mouse. The essay “A life of the senses” touches on the Importance of nature and how our technology Is interfering with how we view nature, and the Importance of It all. The essay “A life of the senses” was written by author Richard Loop. I found the essay In the textbook Rereading America.

American Dream

Even though people may tell me to do other things in life I will always try to keep straight mind set towards what God has told me to do and what I really need to do with my life. Many Fellow Americans and I strive for the American dream in life, for this reason I will keep on trying to accomplish what the American dream means to me. The Declaration of Independence was written for Americans to stay united, have freedom, and to fight together arm in arm.

The three words that really stood out to me In the document were “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” these words many different meanings but I have my own meanings for them. Life Is really hard to UT a straight definition to but to me I feel that It means what I need to do for myself and why I was born. Liberty means to me that I can live any way I want to and nobody is able to stop me no matter what the consequences are. Happiness is really how I feel about my life and how accomplish I am.

These three words all have a part in what the American Dream means to me. In “America the Beautiful” by Katherine Lee Bates, she also uses very powerful words Like the “Declaration of Independence” I am able to see a part of the American Dream to When I hear for patriot dream I see that it is a free dream not a dream that was dad for me but I can make my own. That sees beyond the years makes me feel that my dream will be there for years and I am the one in control of it.

These two lines in “America the Beautiful” give me the sense of how my dream can be anything I want it to be. In “l have a dream” by Martin Luther King Jar. He quotes this to show how there is not much freedom but more segregation “When we let freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city”. This shows me that the American Dream is also about freedom for myself and everyone which is big part of the American Dream.

Segregation really affected much of how America was and how it really did not accept many other races other than white men and women. For the reason of segregation I feel that the American Dream is for everyone not Just one individual. Rosa Parks is a very strong and thoughtful Just like King and it shows in her story “Rosa Parks: My Story” “l said, “No. ” He said, “Well, I’m going to have you arrested. ” Then I said, “You may do that. “”. This really shows how I need to stand up for the right thing and what I want to do in life instead of not standing up or myself.

Since Rosa Parks was such an inspiring person I feel that she wants anyone to keep striving for what they want in life. During Chief Dana George’s speech he also uses his words like Rosa Parks in this very powerful part of his speech “l am a chief, but power to make war is gone, and the only weapon left to me is speech. It is only with tongue and speech that I can fight my people’s war. “. This gives me the feeling that I can do anything with not much but Just my thoughts to get me through life as long as I believe in my goals.

I have always thought that words are very strong to keep e firm on the ground and to fight in what I believe in. Paul Laurence Dunbar was a great poet and expressed his feelings on segregation like King, from his poem “Sympathy’ it shows me how it was like to be an African American “l know why the caged bird beats his wing / Till its blood is red on the cruel bar,” . I feel as if the African Americans had no put in on what they could do and they could not have their own American Dream as I do.

I have the power at least in me to figure out what I would want to do but the African Americans could do nothing about how they felt ND could not fight their freedom like I can. Many people have fought for what they have wanted and I will keep on trying to achieve my goals in life and to also do better than what I expect. My American Dream that I have thinking of these past few years is planning out the way I have hoped and I am hoping that it will continue this way for the rest of my life.

Like Klan I am hoping that my dream will turn into a success and I will be able to prosper in my life. If I want my American Dream to turn into a great success I will need to stay grounded and be able to fight in what I believe in. If I am not able to maintain a steady life I can easily be put onto the wrong path and mess up what I really wanted to happen to me in the long end. And I also need to keep on believing in my American Dream to keep on pursuing it and never having to rethink on why I need to do what is set out for me.

I also need to be as determined as Chief Dan them. If I am confident enough in myself I can take the harder challenges so it will pay off to me in the end of chasing my American Dream. My endurance will have to stay with me wherever I go so I can be able to overcome my obstacles and keep on y course to pursue my American Dream with nobody ever getting in my way. The fights that I am going to have to make to become the man I really want to be is that I will have to speak for myself and not have a person to speak for me but to stand up for myself.

Parks was a great woman and always stood up for what she believed in because she knew what was right and what would have to be done in order to have the situation be ended. The accomplishments that Parks made were made because she was a strong woman and stood up for what she believed in. I will need to have his skill to accomplish my American Dream today and in the next following years. This skill will help me very much because I will be outgoing instead of being a very shy person and not take the more challenging and complicated roles in life.

Dunbar was a quiet man but would know on how the world treated him and how painful it was to get through during segregation. The feeling of hard work will be very painful but it will help me to get ready for the tougher challenges that will be put in front of me when the time comes in my life. When I know that it will be very exhausting and I ill probably be very weary I will know that I am not the person who took the path that was easier but I took the path that needed some work to be put in to get that extreme goal that I will be looking forward in my life.

Many Fellow Americans and I strive for the American dream in life, for this reason I will keep on trying to accomplish what the American dream means to me. All of the American population all have different American Dreams but I for sure will know what my American Dream is. The people who I have quoted are the people that have shaped my American Dream into what I now believe in. So because of these people I am able to have my goals in my American Dream. These people are very inspiring to me and I will try to show people on how they have changed this world.

American Dream

“In the American dream life should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement regardless of social class or circumstances of birth. ” James Torturous Adams defined that as the American dream in 1931. The American dream can also be derived from the Declaration of Independence of the United States. It proclaims that “all men are created equal,” and that they are “endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights”, including, “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The American dream is different from one errors to the next; it could be as widespread as having some food and shelter to million dollar Lampooning. It is what each individual is striving for in their life. More and More Americans today believe the ‘American dream’ is a lost cause due to the economic crisis.

Although most Americans are staying optimistic and are using words like: effort, ambition, and belief.

That means there is still hope for people still wanting to achieve the ‘American dream’. To most Americans the ‘American Dream’ consists of property and Income. In 2011 Métier’s annual general population survey uncovered significant differences in the American dream of today and yesterdays.

American Dream

What is the American Dream? We all have dreams of different kinds. To some people, the American Dream is having all that is available in this life to meet your needs, wants, and desires. To others, it means having a great Job, a wonderful family, and a secure future. And maybe to others the American Dream simply means having the opportunity to prove yourself. No matter what your definition of the American Dream Is, we all try hard to achieve this one common goal.

In Crossover’s, “What Is an American” speech he defines America as a democracy where every man has a say In the government; “We have no princes, for whom we toll, starve, and bleed. ” It Is clear, through his speech, that Occurred feels as If the American Dream has not changed. He stills views America as the land of equality and freedom. He sees America as the land where the rich, the poor, homosexuals, bisexuals, blacks, whites, and Hispanics all live In harmony.

But today, It Is obvious to see that the “glimmer” of the utopian American society Is not what It seems. Although liberty and Justice for all Is guaranteed by our constitution, I don’t believe It exists equally for all segments of our population. What does it mean to live in a country with “Liberty and Justice for all? ” Does it mean that everyone who is and American has the right to be what they want? Well by reading Martin Luther King’s “l Have a Dream Speech,” I have come to realize the way that people view things
