American Dream ?

We often hear such words in the Philippines but what is really meant by " American Dream" ?

The American dream embodies hope for a better life for one self and one's children. since the United States came into existence, it has been as a land of opportunity by countless immigrants from all over the world. the American dream is largely one of middle-class material existence: beautiful house,car, appliances, food in abudance, and the benefits of education for oneself and/or one's children. The American dream can come true for some immigrants, if they work hard enought for it; some are successful, some are not, and for others it is " just ok" This type of hope and ambition is not only to be found in America; it is possible for people to achieve it in thier own homeland also.
