“Me and Ruth done made some sacrifices for you – why can’t you do something for the family?” (Hansberry 1.1.118). The Younger family has grown up without much and when the father dies, he leaves an inheritance that can get the family into a comfortable living position. The only problem is that they all want to use the money for different reasons. Each character wants to make their own dreams come true.
In the book Deep Economy there necessarily is not a challenge of the system, but instead it is more of a questioning of the system. One way this book questions the system is that it questions how we value our economic success and how this factors into our happiness. As a society we believe that the more money a person has, the happier they will be. McKibben questions this idea by pointing out that although our economy has significantly increased since World War II, our happiness has not grown with this, in fact it has decreased. He also mentions that Americans are overall unhappy.
Although the check belongs to the spouse which is Mama, everyone else is constructing a dream revolving around the money. Walter being the “Man of the house” believes his dream is more impactful.

In her play A Raisin in the Sun, author Lorraine Hansberry conveys that a change in character is essential in order to attain one’s dreams. Such changes can include a shift in perspective or personality. The most prominent difference is the altering of Walter’s perspective. Walter has always believed that the most valuable possession in life is money, hence why he is always requesting for funds to establish a liquor store. Walter considers success in life as having a good job with a steady income to support a loving family.
The American Dream is simple, it is to be able to provide for yourself and your family. The dream is still attainable, but due to a lack of motivation and because the dream has become blown out of proportion, most Americans believe that they have not achieved it. The American Dream has been built up to be obtaining large sums of money and numerous material possessions. The actual dream, though, is to be able to provide a comfortable living for yourself and loved ones. In the last one hundred years, the dream itself has not changed, rather people’s attitude toward the dream has changed.
But the principle is the same: giving is important. This truth is timeless. This value is also universal, because generosity is important in every society. If we do not think of other people, their rights are not protected and the rules of society quickly start to break down. What makes this story so effective is that it conveys the value in only a few sentences.
That is why starting to plan is okay, the money situation is always a good place to start for many reasons. Having the money or at least part of it parents won 't have to worry about having to pay so much in the future. There are always scholarships that your kid can get.

In an article by The Washington Post named “Indian Immigrants Make It Obvious That The American Dream Is ALive and Well”, “There are no absolute barriers to upward social mobility in America; that is why immigrants thrive...”(Wadhwa). Upon arriving first generation immigrants often don’t start with anything more than their clothes on their backs. Although this may seem like a bad thing at first, this actually is an advantage to them. They don’t inherit the debts of older generations and if they work hard enough can only go up the economic ladder. While climbing the economic ladder, most aspiring Americans have a high regard for family values.
It is no secret that today’s society is fast paced and success oriented. People live their lives as if money and work are the ultimate sources of happiness, despite the popular proverb that suggests precisely the opposite. In his article, Mark Edmundson delves into this catastrophe and attempts to explain both how and why it occurs. He states in the first paragraph that he sees his students as “people who are in the process of choosing a way to make money and succeed, a strategy for getting on in life.” Edmundson says that the ideals of courage, wisdom and compassion are fading away in culture today.

Since then, the so-called American Dream has changed substantially. People have said the American Dream is achievable by anyone with a little hard work, and determination. Yes, maybe 100 years ago that was true because our nation was expanding at such an exponential rate that someone could achieve the dream through many career pathways.
A majority of the population thinks they want the traditional American dream the cliché of a picture-perfect life, dream job, and the beautiful home. What we truly long for is freedom from our government. Pop culture mirrors this through movies and media. Such as themes like the collapse of the government, the rebirth of the American dream, and end of the world scenarios. Pop culture reflects these fears that private and public entities will turn on our society.
I have never realized how important Veterans Day and why we celebrate Veterans Day. We celebrate Veterans Day on the 11th day, 11th hour and the 11th month. We celebrate it to honor military veterans that served in the United States Armed Forces. I really didn't realize what all the Veterans have done for me and the world now, until and have matured and got older. This saying really relates to what the Veterans have done for us in today's world, “Look how far we have come, and how far we have to go.”
