This final line to The New Colossus by Emma Lazarus, which is engraved on the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor, has welcomed millions of hopeful immigrants coming to Americ driven on by a dream, the American Dream.
What is this dream that so many come looking for? The American Dream means freedom, success, opportunities, equality, justice, and safety for all. The chance so unique, it only exists in a single country. But how many actually achieve it? Is it a myth or reality? It can be fact or fiction. America is like a double-edged1 sword, with the ability2 to strengthen your heart and the risk of stabbing3 you in the stomach.
Each aspect of the American Dream can lead to succeed or failure. I think we forget that just the opportunity to succeed is a basic freedom that eludes many people on this planet. - Mike W.
When people come to America trying to make the dream come true, everyone is given a chance to succeed. However, it is extremely rare to exceed4 social barrier. Although this may seem pessimistic, one s surroundings5 often shape the character and one s incentive6 to succeed.

A essential aspect of the American democraty is the justice system, which states that all citizens are innocent until proven guilty (like in Germany). But what happens when someone is proven innocent10 for a crime they committed? Many hard core11 criminals destroying the future of the country can get away with crimes by technicalities. For example, an unconstitutional gathering of evidence or witness tampering12. This allows these criminals to walk away with no punishment for their actions. America is proud of its justice system, which is supposed to help protect the American people, but if so many can get out of discipline, how safe are the citizens? The truth of the matter is an interesting paradox: These mistakes that allow criminals to go free are simultaneously13 attributes to the justice system which protects the rights of America s people. This makes justice an honorable system which protects the freedoms and rights of this country. Each person is guaranteed a fair trial, and ...
