The American Dream for me is more a way of life because I want to grow up have a good job and make a good amount of money. In America we love the fact that we can do what we want, say what we want, and be who ever we want to be. Me as an American i'm always inspired by those who that start small and make it big later on. A child who grew up in the ghettos of the Bronx, could grow up to be a neuro surgeon, Someone who was singing in there basement, like Whitney Huston, Could make it big and have a huge impact on the lives of others. Its a huge American custom to work hard for what you want, strive to become great.
