The "American Dream"

What is the "American Dream"?  It's an idea in which the "Dream" is, regardless of where you come from, by being free and working hard you can be rich and successful.  The "American" part is that the country's beginings and government are based on having personal freedom, being given the opportunity to choose and to be directly rewarded for your efforts - all without being discriminated.  America is the place where the "Dream" can happen.

Now that does not mean that America has got it all right or that it is a perfect place. But people all around the world are looking for a better life.  Some countries don't allow their citizens full choice or have strict social or religious rules for behaviour that depend on the family that you are born into.  The United States has simply been against those sort of restrictions - that's one of the reasons why, a liitle over 200 years ago, they rebelled against England and it's King.  Today Americans continue to encourage freedom to allow its citizens to seek prosperity through hard work.  That is why so many people from overseas want to live and learn there.

Perhaps you are one of those people.  Bow High School is a great example of life in America with all its hopes and dreams carried within the students and staff that go there.  You could join them.  You could have a better life.
