The American Dream

The American dream.
We all have a dream, a yearning, but every dream requires a sacrifice. Or a hope. A reason to live. We all fight for a dream, but an immigrant fights for the American Dream.
Many Latinos immigrate to Canada or the United States for a chance at a better life, or to help their families back in their country of origin. Our countries are mostly harmed by crisis, economic problems and delinquency. Some Latinos immigrate because of the gangs in our countries, and many die because of these gangs. They kill innocent people. We’re not safe in our countries, and that is why we immigrate to safer places in search for help.
The life of an immigrant isn’t an easy one. We sometimes struggle with a lot of discrimination, it’s harder for us to find good jobs, but at least we can also show that we struggle and yet we are capable of getting ahead. Many immigrants come to the United States or Canada, to have a better life, without knowing what life is like in the North. The way I see it, the American Dream is an ideal or belief that anyone, regardless of where they were born or what class they were born into, can attain their own version of success in a society where the having a better job, education, and safety is possible for everyone. The American Dream is achieved through sacrifice, risk-taking and hard work, rather than by chance.
