Both were low on money in the beginning, but my father was considered a hardworking man as he struggled to find a job with a suitable pay, while my mother was told to "get it together" while she job hunted. If I were sick or had to be picked up early, my father's coworkers would commend him for being a good father, while my mother was fired from more than one job because of the inconvenience.

As Wallace would think finding freedom would mean finding it through education and learning as Wallace’s states “This, I submit, is the freedom of a real education, of learning how to be well adjusted” (Wallace 207). Here Wallace is describing yet another type of freedom that he describes in his speech that learning is process to re-adjusting the way you think.

To many Americans the American Dream is impossible, but to others the dream is a reality. The dream to me means to have three simple qualities while in America, freedom, equality, and success. These three qualities are keen when living in America because they not only proclaim what America is truly about but they are the qualities that make up America.

Walter wants to be happy and his family to be happy for him. “That is just what is wrong with the black woman in this world… Don't understand about building their men up and making them feel like they somebody, like they can do something” (Hansberry 16). Walter feels that his wife doesn't support him, and doesn't want him to be happy because she is not on board with his dream to own a liquor store. Walter is a good example of the American Dream because he works hard, and strives to try to accomplish his dream. Even though he doesn't actually accomplish his goals, through no fault of his own, he still puts an effort in.

This is because, as he is looking around him he knows this is not the place for him to be in working under a boss that does not understand what he is doing to a person’s feeling and do not care how he is making them feel because of what he finds to be acceptable in society. Also, it is important because Sammy works is co-workers with a twenty-two year old male who is married with two kids. As far as Sammy is concerned in this era of time, he is somewhat behind in life. He is unwed with a crappy job, he needs more substance and meaning to be poured in even if it makes his parents, boss, or whom else it may concern mad. A big important factor to why this is important in Sammy’s case is because before the moment Queenie took his eye, you can infer that he never really gave his purpose in life much thought and he was curious or yearning for a love.

A lot of the times during work when they are out there they will be forced to skip a meal, but they do not usually complain they just keep working in order to help out. In the one part of the video you see the family taking a break and the one kid asks, “did we even eat yesterday” and someone else replies that there was too much work to take a break. Although a lot of the children do not wish to be working in the field, they all aspire to be able to finishes schools that they may find a new way of income to help support their families.
