American Dream

February 21, 2008
By John Seier, Waverly, NE

A two-story house
Brilliant red shutters
White picket fence
A clumsy little puppy

Mini vans with a “soccer mom” bumper sticker
Men walking to work with their suitcases

This is what we think of when we hear the American Dream
We are all trapped in conformity
Everyone has his or her own goals or dreams
This is the true American dream
