Recollections of July 4th and the American Dream

by th0ughts on July 6, 2009

This post may have been late for the occasion but it was made intentionally to find out what sort of impact this occasion has for most Americans. Every July 4th, Americans celebrates their independence, commonly known as the Fourth of July, a federal holiday commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. This special day highlights merry-making all over the country in various forms such as fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, political speeches and ceremonies, and various other public and private events celebrating the history, government, and traditions of the United States.

The recently concluded national event comes with whopping figures on job losses in June which are depressing. Though America remains fierce on its offensive measures towards Afghanistan with Obama lately taking action on a missing soldier, the fact that an American’s life is in danger, is still a matter of concern.

Going back to the current state of the American nation, do you think that with the rising number of job losses nationwide, the “American Dream” is still arm reaching? Or it has literally turned into a struggle everyone wants to take a piece of? What impact does it have to you and to other people in other parts of the world wanting to migrate and find their dreams in the US?

While I cannot answer these questions, I’m still optimistic about everything and always hope for the best. My belated Happy Independence Day goes to all Americans and here’s a small tribute to all of you, the Star-spangled Banner sung by Grammy Winner Jennifer Hudson.
