In these letters De Crevecoeur addresses how America is a new type of person. This new type of person De Crevecoeur refers to are the individuals who came to America during the frontier. These individuals came from all over and hold different beliefs. De Crevecoeur finds that “Diverse nationalities and faiths, he said, might well ‘melt’ into a more peaceful, justice-loving, and prosperous original, and it should be the envy of the world” (Horwitz 23). The frontier brought about a whole new race of individuals who could bring a whole new perspective.
I asked Garrett Gassman about The American Dream, and what it meant to him, and I have got a very interesting answers that I will share later. The definition of The American Dream may change a bit through time, but it will always be about success. After researching about The American Dream, my definition change a bit. I believe it means that every person have
“I’m alright, where are you from?” he asked It was that question, such a simple question that means so much. I am mixed, half American, half Thai and was born in Hong Kong. By blood, I am from those places, it is my heritage, but it doesn 't necessarily mean that I have to say that I am from New Jersey, Thailand or Hong Kong. I am from New Jersey, the garden state, the place with blue skies and big yards and happy families. People call this the American dream but it is also my dream.
No matter who you are or where you have come from, you have undoubtedly heard of the American Dream. The idea that no matter who you are or where you have come from, you can do whatever it is you desire in America. What was once one the main driving forces for immigrants to flock to the new world, has slowly changed over the years, but still holds its value in the eyes of those who are looking for a promising new place to live. The American dream might not hold the same awe inspiring sound that it once did, but for many generations before ours it was a beacon of hope that helped build the foundation that the United States was built on. And, still, today the American dream might not be as achievable as it once was, but it is still an important
Through my adolescent years, however, I had lost my faith a few times do to different events that transpired in my life. It took some time and great trust, but I eventually found my spiritual belief again. Based on my own experiences, I tend to favor Lewis’ argument in The Question of God. Lewis and Freud both begin the book with the same atheist belief. They found no faith or comfort in God.
Coming to America with my parents when I was about 11 years old was a new adventure for me. There were a lot of changes that needed to be made and experiencing new things. I would have to make some adjustment and getting used to the American culture and learning the language they speak. My parents had made a big sacrifice coming to America.

What does being an American mean to me? I love it, but I think it 's more about being yourself. Being an American has a lot of amazing things that come with it, like the protection and the limited freedom, but what makes one person is there own personality. What makes a country are several millions of people who are all different and working together to create an amazing, protected place for people to live. We have progressed further as this country has aged.

All immigrants have one thing in common: they are chasing the “American Dream”. The American Dream has many interpretations, but it is commonly defined as “the ideal that every US citizen should have an equal opportunity to achieve success and prosperity through hard work, determination, and initiative”. Success stories of the few who go from “rags to riches” by overcoming their obstacles and unfortunate circumstances through hard work, grit, and perseverance have lingered in the American culture for centuries, but with unemployment rates on the rise, and class mobility rates declining, many are questioning if the American dream is
From my first semester in college I could not decide what career I want to be in. After a long time thinking and researching I narrowed down my interest to political science, and my interests have directed me towards international relations and laws. I am fascinated by how the states of the world cooperate together to build a safe place for everyone. American government places a huge role in the world and many countries need American Foreign Service to help them with their problems. After hearing Melissa Martinez, I understood maybe it is good to think about working in Foreign Service.
I could also explore further what would have happened without a declaration and what did happen because of it. This event does not only impact the American history and country but it does impact on a worldwide scale and throughout american history our Bill of Rights has been used in courtrooms to settle disputes. This one act or event has laid down the foundation for our country and still serves today and which is why I believe it is so important. I would really like to expand into the founding fathers personal lives with accomplishments and set back that is unknown unless researched. The kinds of questions I would like to answer is how they started out in life and what they did to get their position.

Becoming a citizen of the United State has had a huge impact on Roger life.When Roger first came to America, it was like starting a new life, he had nothing. Today, Roger has a good job and a great family.

What does it mean to be an American? To be an American can mean many different things, it could mean that you have American parents and that you were born in America. You could have American parents and be born in a different country and still be considered American. To me it means that you live in America, you could be from places like Turkey, Spain, Germany, Puerto Rico or anywhere and live in America and be considered an American. All Americans are immigrants, this is stated in The Immigrant Contribution by John F. Kennedy.
