“To be great is to be misunderstood” This part of the story gets to me the most because of the way he said it. I think of this like when I was in Fertile baseball. We had many great players on our team, but when we had to move up to high school baseball it was like none of the coaches gave a thought about you. Mr. Jerome could’ve said you were great, but he didn’t mean it; if weren’t from Forest City you didn’t start no matter how good you were. I have many words I would like to say to him, like having a great team if he would’ve just tried you out once.

From the 50s until now, I still think, our country has been through so much, but when will it not be able to take anymore? The world may never know. My grandfather, Joe R. Mays-Holiday, has always had a life of triumph and recovery even in some of the country’s darkest times. In addition, he is considered living legend to me.

George Washington Carver continued to make groundbreaking accomplishments after schooling given that towards the end of his career he was decorated with many awards such as being the first African-American to have a monument created on their behalf (Ginsberg, 2005, pg.3). What makes Carver great in the eyes of many Americans of his time and of today, is the fact that he set aside racial differences between blacks and whites; Carver somehow managed to find a common ground when relating with both blacks and whites. As best written by Judah Ginsberg, “ Indeed, Carver became a racial symbol for blacks and whites. For African Americans, before the civil rights movement, Carver was a role model to emulate. For whites, he was proof that America was a land of opportunity for everyone” (2005, pg.3).
For over seventy years America has bought into and celebrated the idea of an American dream. An ideal that sets us apart from all other nations and a story that Americans and immigrants alike have honored for years.

Despite each of them representing true factors in the dream and American history, biases created by their lives and past block them from being able to recognize the whole story behind the American dream we know today.

He was a high culture painter who appealed more to other painters than to the tastes of the masses.” (Gunzburg, Darrelyn 72) “Waterhouse is now recognized as one of the greatest of England’s late-Victorian romantic painters.” (Wood
‘Nowadays, the work of Alfred Hitchcock is admired all over the world’ (Truffaut, 1986, p.9). Although this was stated in 1966 in the original copy it still applies today as Hitchcock’s body of work consists of fifty-three films some of which are worldwide phenomena. Young audiences who consume his films today assume that Alfred Hitchcock’s work has always been at its prime; this however was not always the case, it is only now after his passing that more people are beginning to understand how truly masterful some of his films are but in subjectivity of course as his films cannot please everyone.
