The American creed is about putting aside our differences to help each other and work together as a community . The problem is that lately people are only worried about themselves. In “The American Dream is not Dead Yet” it mentions that Americans are divided and self centered. one reason why people are so divided is because, people debate and argue about how we can make our country better. Instead of arguing everyone should just go out of their way and help someone who needs it. In the article “Congress Needs to Stand up for Dreamers” Kumar talks about how the American dream is about belonging to a community and welcoming each other. Some people want to prevent immigrants from coming into the US, but they should try to be more welcoming. If you help other people then you’ll be able to create a stronger community and maybe one day you’ll even need their help. In “To this Day” Koyczan talks about how people are separated and put down on a lower level than their peers, and how it makes those people feel. Those people that aren’t welcomed don’t feel like they are part of a community. If people don’t feel like they are part of a community then they aren’t a part of the American dream. If you exclude other people instead of welcoming them then your community won’t be as strong and that person you excluded won’t be able to live the American dream. In order to have a strong and welcoming community everyone has to help each other and be welcoming of others.
