The next generation is important. I want them to believe in the right things and stand up for what they believe in. I believe there are three main goals that should be fought for, for eternity. We need to pass this concept on and let it grow throughout their lives. I believe "life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness" are extremely important. They are the basis of my American Dream.

I think we should pass on the goal of learning to live. Meaning, I want people to understand how important what it is to live in life. They should live their life to the fullest and take advantage of opportunities that will help them throughout their lives. I think education is a key role in living. People should get the best education they can provide for themselves. They should learn about our nation's history and about the future. I believe people should also have liberty and always take advantage of their rights as American citizens.

They should believe it a blessing to have such wonderful rights and liberties. We have so many things to stand up for and fight for what we believe is right. People should not just sit back and let those chances drift away. I also believe the pursuit of happiness should be one of the master goals of each individual in this world. People should try out different ways of living to find out what is the best way for them. Whether it is who is in your life, like your family, friends, or special someone, or whether it is where you live. It might be your job that makes you happy. You have to find out for yourself and live up to that dream to the best of your ability. Don't let your dreams pass you...
