Having a chance or dream is how an American life Starts Out, believing you can do something with your own life, getting the job you always wanted, and having equal rights. Overcoming obstacles is a great way to have believe in yourself and going out into this country that gives you a chance no matter how poor there’s always some type of help for you because of all the public facilities that exist in this free country. This quote explains it, “But now I can say that I am a Japanese-American. It means I have a place here in this country, too” (Growing up Asian in America).
This girl overcame the problem that was going on in World War 2 when all Japanese were being put in concentration camps by the U. S. Government because of Pearl Harbor. After it all ended she was actually proud to be Japanese-American because she had rights and a chance to get somewhere in life after all the down falls during the war where everything was taken for all Japanese. She still had hope and was influenced by America, to a dream that can be possible. Following it no matter what color or race your are, all you have to do is have a dream, but go out there and make that dream become true.
Every person has this chance to go out there and make it to the top, work hard for it and you have to be the one who has to make it possible. Getting to where you want to be with a successful job isn’t easy. It takes lots of determination to get there and be one of a kind. That’s the goal of every person out there but It’s not as easy as people say because there’s different advantages and disadvantages depending who you are or where you’re from. But being the American that your are it should have a positive outlook to get there.
For example this quote, ” Who is to say, then, if there is any right path o the top, or even to say what the top consists of right to Fail). So how are we sure that it possible to get to the top, there’s no one to tell you that and that’s why you have to take action in life and beat the competition to get the job that you want. There arena any more secure jobs out there in this country they will take the best they can get so you have to be prepared because I also think the white person has an advantage against a minority. It always been a question of what equal rights mean in every situation and race always conflicts with this as well. The laws, the indulgent laws, protect hem as they arrive, stamping on them the symbol of adoption; they receive ample rewards for their labors; these accumulated rewards procure them lands; those lands confer on them the title of freemen; and to that title every benefit is affixed which men can possibly require”(What is an America). Looking at this quote I can tell that minorities are coming into this country from Europe and the law is protecting them to be here and work in lands and then reward them with land of their own.
