I have a vision of an American dream…
Imagine,for a moment,happypeople. I do notmean the oneswho promotehappiness. I mean trulyhappy people. Let us imagine thatwe get out ofthe housewithout fearof whetherwelocked the housewell or turned ona securityalarm.
In my vision of an American dream everybody rushes to work, because everyone has one. Children are running aroundcarefreewithout fright ofangry drivers, and parents are relaxed because they know their children are safe. When people returnfrom work, they have familylunch,retellingother family members daily adventures. They alllaughout loud, and they are happy. After the lunch, the fatheris reading his newspaperand momis plantingflowers, occasionallylookingthrough window at kids throwing a ball to their dog.
Can we imaginetwo loverstowalksafelyat night, seating in the park or even going to some play? I imagine life without predators, drug dealers,the attacker andadolescents late at night. In my vision the life and the environment of all people excludes adversity, and all problems are solved within the family, with their support.
In this vision I also see parents who do not have to worry how they will educate their kids, because they know state will help them; sick persons are not afraid about lack of money for healing, but solely about the healing itself.
Thisisallmy vision,but I am notfarfrom reality. This ispart of myAmerican dream, andif all of us doour best,this dreamcan berealized.
