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
They have taught them many precious lessons as well as values that allowed them to expand and build the vast country that stands erect today. Furthermore, the creation story is very relevant to other cultures. Not only does it show the relevance between Native American culture and beliefs with the rest of the world, but it also shines light on their thoughts and points of view that could be further studied. Finally, there can be similarities found between every nation, no matter how different they may seem on the surface, because all humans share an innate essence with one another, human
Not only does this bring a humorous aspect to the song, in that its sung by King George to America, but it also provides a sense of relatability to its message by simplifying the complexity of politics down to something more human which many more people can understand. By using the three appeals of rhetoric, ethos,
The opportunities that influenced Crévecoeur writings are still enticing foreigners to immigrate to America today. When comparing the immigrants of the 18th century to those of today, both desire to immigrate to America for the freedom and the opportunities that do not exist in their homeland. Regardless of the current climate of politics in America, America is known for the ideals of freedom, individuality, prosperity, and ethnic diversity. America has always been and always will be the land of the
The strategic programs have increased minority representation and have enabled the Army to reflect American society. These programs combined with emphasis on broadening assignments as integral element of leader development has allowed the Army to benefit from two positive results of diversity (Erbe, 2014). An inclusive Army is known to be a positive manifestation of nation for espoused commitment to equality and it is specifically important while deploying because Army represents America all across the globe. The cognitive diversity gained by exposing leaders to
America is called the “melting pot of the world” for its rich history of immigration. This history created a country of people with distinct cultures, background, and religion that have influenced the traditions and values of collective American culture. Present times are also influencing American culture, for example the Obergefell V Hodges Supreme court case which influenced the change in legalizing gay marriage. Weddings are not immune to this influence; American weddings exemplify the unique and evolving blend of traditions and value. Weddings are full of unique culture and tradition anywhere in the world, but America is distinctive in the way that its history has created a cultural blend of traditions and
America is known for many things, such as its history, music, food, clothing style, education, and for being known as the Land of opportunities. Since 1765, The U.S. has been fighting for its freedom to get to where Americans are today and to give the Americans the future they deserve. The most recognized and valued treasure this country has respected for many years is the Pledge of Allegiance and the glory of having to stand up and show the pride there is. I, for one, think that the Pledge of Allegiance is a great representation of the beauty, strength, faith, and perseverance this nation possesses because of the way each word in the pledge has a strong and significant meaning. The pledge can mean many different things to many different people but it will always be known as a symbol of justice and indivisibility.
Yes I love nature and I have many great memories from it, but I don’t see it was an intimate type of love. Another thing I enjoyed about his essay was how he totally related our minds with nature. For example, Lopez says that our imagination is carved by the things we have experienced in
“The American Dream” has been referenced as a common ethos for any and all American citizens. However, it has become a widespread connotation that either the same path can be taken or the same goal is present for most people. This is not entirely true; “The American Dream” doesn’t exist; rather “American Dreams.” Literature is a great platform to express and display strong, compelling, and direct messages. Both The Great Gatsby and My Ántonia demonstrate a theme
After listening to all civilisations, I noticed the similarities between the different myths in terms of culture, art, architecture, symbolism, and religion. It is obviously beneficial to me, someone who wonders of the study that covers world cultures, and appeals to me on many disciplines such as sociology and philosophy. The first part of this essay discusses areas that interest me and in the second part, how these myths are relevant. Lastly, other information I would like to know. This essay primarily focuses on Inca, Norse and Egyptian civilisations.
The richness of El Paso, Texas relies on the vast diversity observed in each one of its citizens, which has opened the way for El Paso to develop as a multicultural city. Emigration has been one of the main factors that has diversified El Paso’s cultural background, citizens from all over the world have landed a foot over American territory and have made it theirs, several nationalities, several races, one community, one El Paso. Emigration has also caused the expansion of a plethora of traditions across the area, which has made El Paso’s culture an indispensable resource of the state of Texas. A diverse country, state or city is the one that values the difference in people and therefore recognizes that people with different backgrounds,
Since the vast majority of these cultural products are produce in America it is not surprising that they have an American centered view of the world. UNESCO has produced an study on the flow of cultural products which puts numbers to this observation, at least when talking about world cultures (UNESCO. 2005). I like your use of quotes and citations. As you can see I am also trying to include them
The Soviet Union produced many revolutionary cultural transformations within its empire during its earlier years. From improving education, healthcare, agriculture, equality and many other things, the Soviet Union had a very positive on its citizens and was willing to spread their ideas to the world, especially to people who were oppressed by Western countries. One of the ways the Soviet Union spread its ideas was through the invitation of the top African American intellectuals from America during the 1930s-1970s. Intellectuals, like Langston Hughes, were invited to come to the Soviet Union to see how progressive the Soviet Union was, especially in terms of racial and economic equality. Hughes traveled through Russia and Central Asia and
As Turner pointed out, his own views on how he believes that the American frontier was formed by the different characteristics of the people who made it happen and formed America. He states that the attraction to the frontier made a dramatic change to America and the West due to the different cultures each race brought unto the country allowing each one to accept as well change persons perspective of each others culture. (Turner, 1996.) The frontier helped everybody make a part of the history because of the necessities the frontier helped provide. It was and it continues to be a part of history because the frontier continues to change peoples life as they still continue
When you think about America as a whole what comes to mind? For me, America represents equality, freedom and most importantly a vast amount of diversity. America thrives on diversity; the different cultures, religions and races are what makes America exactly what it is—‘the melting pot’. Many people from all over the world dream of coming to ‘the land of the free and the home of the brave.’ Its very existence is what people desire to be a part of. “Often referred to as ‘A Nation of Immigrants’ (Kennedy, 1959) the Unites States is far more ethnically diverse than most other nations.” (Bello, 2009) Diversity has shaped and formed America and the people who reside within it.
