Are you doing your part to keep the american dream alive?. In the article Keeping The Dream Alive author Jon meacham has a very clear thought on what's going on in America which in his ideas are that the upper class wealthy have more control and certain breaks. Meacham does a great job of conveying the dream throughout the history of america going in chronological order. Many great Americans believed that we have the power to make the world or at least America a better place not perfect but better.”Roosevelt quoted that observation in his final Inaugural Address in the winter of 1945, and in the ensuing decades, American power and prosperity reached epic heights. The Peabody-Roosevelt gospel seemed to get it right: the world was not perfect, nor was it perfectible,”(Meacham 1).This does not define the individual American dream but how the government thinks we should be as a nation we can not prosper until we fail.

Although there is not that much of an ethos argument directly in the article, the knowledge and intimacy with the topic behind the scenes is. Due to Snyder’s position as a history professor at Yale, it is expected that he is highly educated on modern Eastern Europe, which is his field of expertise. In addition, he has written several other articles and books about the Holocaust in conjunction with teaching undergraduate and graduate courses on this topic. Taught in 2013-2013, two of these classes, Eastern Europe to 1914 and Eastern Europe Since 1914, reinforce the author’s credibility to a history commentary and argument written in 2013. Due to his position as a college professor, the credentials he obtained to become one, and the currency of his teaching at the time of the article, it gives Snyder’s argument more validity due to the gravity behind his

I am using this approach to literature in two major projects this year. First, I received a $2,400 National Endowment for the Humanities Younger Scholars Summer Research Grant. I proposed to expand on a prior research project, looking at the use of silence in the novels of Elie Wiesel, and at the ways Wiesel both demonstrates and gets around the fact that conventional language simply breaks down when it is used to talk about the Holocaust. I plan to expand on the same project for my senior English thesis. For this thesis I am studying the ways Wiesel uses silence in the literal content of his novels and in his writing technique, and am working toward explanations as to how he gives these silences meaning.

Second step doesn 't teach you much of anything other than that. I don 't think
