The American dream in 2010 is about finding the sublime in the everyday, like taking a stroll at dusk through your neighborhood and stopping to chat or at least wave hello to your neighbors, sipping wine with friends on a friday night or stopping by a park to watch the local baseball game going on. It's that simple. It's not about the number of 'friends' on Facebook or the number of shoes in your closet. Embrace life as it actually is, warts and all, and try to become a better well-rounded, empathetic and informed person.
Now, what is YOUR american dream?
One flag, one land, one heart, one hand, One Nation evermore!
-Oliver Wendell Holmes
