What I think the American Dream is

What is the American Dream?

Before I started writing, I asked myself:What exactly is The American dream, and does it even exist anymore, and if so, does The American Dream have the same meaning today as it had in the past? Is The American Dream only for Americans, or do people from around the world still move to the U.S., hoping to achieve their dreams?

“American Dream” was invented during the Great Depression. The years that followed after the Great Depression, The American Dream came true for many of the young people, however,the definition of The American Dream has changed over the years. The American Dream is still alive; it just depends on how you define it. For me, The American Dream is about success in terms of what you wish for. Compared to many other countries in the world, America is a place where you have the opportunity to determine your own success. Everyone has different jobs which can control how successful they are or want to be. I believe that most dreams revolve around one’s happiness and well-being, is achievable for all.  In fact, it has a different meaning for each of us, but I’m sure we can all agree that the American Dream includes hope for a richer life with freedom and opportunity.
