Definition of the American Dream

Michael Manning

            Every family in America had something to be proud of.  Whether it was a business, a car, a home, an impeccable financial status, or just good health.  They all wanted something to own and show-off.  That was how the American dream was defined.  Of course, it only worked in the region of suburbia.  Everyone knew it.  It had been the unwritten code of American living for a long time.  What started in Levittown, Long Island swept the nation and reached other parts of the world.  That was what made the U.S. a place for people to make their mark and be proud.
