Hello fellow students at John Hopkins University. I’ve been asked to host a speech about what we know as the American dream.
The American dream is a concept we have been living by for years, but is the American dream a phenomenon? is the American dream still alive? Or is it something we have left behind years back with new governments and new politic views?
The American dream has changed so much over the years to where we ask ourselves, does the American dream even exist anymore?
The American dream will always live on, in the perspective that it will always be possible for a person to live the American dream. But what used to be a certainty isn’t anymore, “if you work hard enough you will get rewarded”
That’s the main subject of the American dream, so why are thousands of people working over 12 hours a day and still living in poverty.
That’s because the American dream isn’t a certainty anymore, you can’t expect to become wealthy by working hard.
