The book of Jonah is a short narrative packed with big ideas and lessons inside of it. It tells the story of the prophet Jonah, who was called by God to speak prophecy to the people of Nineveh. Instead of answering the call, Jonah ran away. In the midst of his fear, Jonah boarded a ship leaving for Tarshish. The voyage is cut short by a storm in which Jonah told his fellow men to cast him into the sea so the storm will pass.
Sandwiched between the war-ravaged 1940s and the explosive 1960s, the 1950’s was a time of great growth and prosperity in many aspects. It was seen as “the calm before the storm of social chaos that swept over the country in the more contentious 1960s.” It was indeed a time we perceive as innocent, wholesome, and peaceful. The U.S. was recovering from World War II and GIs were coming home. They started new lives in suburban, middle class utopias hoping to achieve the American dream (Shmoop Editorial Team).
When he was able to do really well on the horse and he thought he was on top of the world. He automatically went to Sohcreities and started bragging about how amaxzing he was.

The gifts from America to my generation are amazing. The fact that so many people fought and even died for our freedom is incredible. I 'm going to list some of the gifts America has given my generation and how thankful I am for them. The first gift America has given to my generation is freedom of speech. I 'm so glad that we are allowed to say and think what we want.
‘Immigration is a good thing. We should make that as easy as possible’. This was said by an American Politician, Gary Johnson. Canada is a country that attracts immigrants from all around the world who are finding a place for them to settle and prosper because of its good opportunities. Its annual immigration flow is now one of the greatest among OECD members (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development), at 0.7 per cent of its population, respectively.
As Campanon notes, America is a simulation of Self 's self-reflexiveness (91) and it serves as a projection of Self’s insatiable desire: ‘I have always understood that America is the land of opportunity. Vigorously mongrel, America is a land with success in its ozone, a new world for the go-getters and new-boomers, a land where fotune grins and makes the triple-ring sign’ (ibid. 207). On this dreamland, ‘all was ocean brightness: against the flat blue sky the clouds had been sketched by an impressively swift and confident hand’ (ibid. 19) and guys are bawling ‘I want my money and I want it now!’(ibid.6). In contrast, London, the golem of Europe, is personified as ‘an old man with bad breath’ (ibid. 85) and whose sky, conversely, is depicted
Finally, the citizens of America must allow millions of undocumented immigrants to continue living in the United States because they help shape the face of this grand nation. By its very nature of the principles in which it was founded, America, more than any other country on the face of the planet, has opened its borders for those in search of opportunities and promises of the “American Dream.” Every day, America welcomes millions of newcomers around the world, and many take advantage of this privilege because the United States has provided many immigrants with a variety of life options that they may not have had in other nations, such as educational resources. For example,” Saudi Arabia, the most profoundly gender-segregated nation on Earth,” has played
Gioia’s creation of a series of NEA National Initiatives to reach previously underserved communities established the agency as truly national in scope (Benson 5). Business Week Magazine referred to him as “The Man Who Saved the NEA” (Byrnes 1). Through programs such as Shakespeare in American Communities, Operation Homecoming: Writing the Wartime Experience, NEA Jazz Masters, American Masterpieces, and Poetry Out Loud, the Arts Endowment has successfully reached millions of Americans in all corners of the country. Due to such successes as well as the continued artistic excellence of the NEA’s core grant programs, the Arts Endowment, under Chairman Gioia, reestablished itself as a preeminent federal agency and a leader in the arts
By romanticizing hardships suffered by immigrants in post wartime eras the American dream attributes success directly to the ability to overcome extreme hardship. This trend is evident in several different sectors of immigrants such as Jewish immigrants, Irish immigrants, and Hispanic immigrants as they assimilate to American pastimes and customs. Furthermore the children of these immigrants reflect this new American Dream successfully since they are apart of adverse cultures and are considered to represent both sides fairly equally. In addition by romanticizing the hardships suffered by immigrants in post wartime eras, certain characteristics are praised because they are believed to embody the American spirit and are thus adopted to further promote national pride.
What the American Flag Means to Me I am proud to live in America. It makes me grateful for all the freedom we have compared to other countries. Every morning at West Middle School we say the pledge of allegiance, it gives me a special feeling, it gives me a happy feeling. Sometimes it makes me wants to give a big smile. When I see an American flag it makes me feel proud, respectful, and it reminds me of all the freedom I get.
The Promise of America is about liberty. The Statue of Liberty has been a welcoming figure to millions of immigrants who came to America. It was built as a recognizable symbol of democracy and freedom. Leaving their native land to join America with hope, they found freedom in the New World. They made it 's freedom safer, richer, more far-reaching, and more capable of growth.
The American flag is a symbol that brings me great hope and comfort. As ubiquitous as it is inspiring, it represents the unity with which people from all walks of life can coexist in this country. As a first-generation American, I know how hard my parents worked to build a life here for our family, and I remember their pride when they finally became citizens by taking an oath under the star-spangled banner. I am honored to be part of this diverse melting pot of cultures and blessed to be part of a nation filled with hope for the future.
