The American dream is still alive

By Awa-Payne Dec 07, 2014 96 Words
The American dream is still alive, it’s just how other people define it. It’s achievable if you know what you are doing. The dream has definitely changed over the past half a century because of the new ideas being exploited through our minds. My American dream is to travel nearly everywhere, then to settle down in a nice house with the money I’ve saved up. Also to have two kids that will be able to go to college. I’ll achieve this if I stick to my goals and manage my money properly.
