All Americans dream. Even if we are not capable of achieving our wildest dreams, we all dream. And we dream big.
To dream is a tradition promised to America throughout its brief history. Our founding fathers dreamed of freedom with the ideas of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Martin Luther King dreamed of equal rights based on the idea that all men are created equal. Thomas Edison dared to dream of wild innovations like the phonograph, the camera, and the light bulb.
The list of Americans like those mentioned above pursuing their dream goes on and on. This history of American successors is where the ideas of the ‘American Dream’ come from. It is why people like you and me dare to dream every day.
Even in tough times, we still dream. Some of our dreams may differ. Some Americans dream of the simple things in life like a nice home, a family, a good job, and good health. Some Americans may dream of wild achievements such as traveling the world, seeing the most exotic sights, to becoming famous, to inventing something, to winning the lottery.
So dare to dream. Dream your wildest dreams. You can climb the highest mountain. You can invent a board game, go sky diving, or go island hopping in the Caribbean. You can fall in love and start a family to share your dreams with. So follow your dreams. You never know where it may take you.
