I'm sorry to disagree with you, my friend. However, so long as there are still dreamers inside this great nation, the American dream will continue
to live on. I refuse to accept that it is over, which is the reason I continue to fight against those who try to crush it. My only desire and my
only dream is that my children will always be able to wake up from their big dreams and recognize that the abillity to reach whatever they dreamt
about is in their reach.
Well this doesn't make any sense, if this kind of mentality is the one kids are following in America, then i guess it will actually be over soon.
Do you want to keep dreaming or not? you want your kids to wake up from their big dreams? so you want them to fail and instead turn to a lesser
reality than the one they were dreaming to live on? and then you say the once they are awake, you want them to know the ability to reach whatever they
dream is in their reach, which makes still less sense than your other sentence.
What i can see from most responses here is that nobody even knows what the "dream" part in "American dream" actually means, or what having a dream
is all about, American dream or whatever else you are, people don't get what dreaming is all about anymore, it just sounds cool to say it.

Man, it was more on the line of "It came true"
And there on that sentence by the comedian, is what everybody seems to be missing here.
A dream is only a dream until it turns real life, then you are not dreaming anymore, it has come true, until then, it was only a dream, not real.
A dream can come true, or not, but until one of those things happen, it will be a dream, nothing more, you can work on making a dream come true, but
you need to actually go and do it real, not just say, oh i have a dream, let's wait until it turns true, because you will wake up and realize it was
only a dream, and you are not rich, beautiful and with good luck, that was the dream, you didn't work hard to make it true, so it didn't happen.
