The American Dream Has Left America
by Daniella Nicole, Outsider Club:
“Bye bye, Miss American Pie . . .” That’s how many Americans are feeling about finding the American Dream here at home. Today, many are finding their slice of the American Dream pie abroad.
For many years, people from all over the world sacrificed and suffered to come to the states in order to pursue the American Dream. For them, this meant above all else, freedom. Freedom from caste systems and dictatorial governments; freedom to obtain an education, start a business, grow their own wealth; freedom to create something to hand down through the generations. It meant the pursuit of happiness as defined by each individual.
My own family fled a war torn country in order to pursue their American Dream here. They came through Ellis Island and embraced all that was American and all it was to be an American.
