My American Creed

My American dream or Creed is that everyone needs to be able to have opportunities in about the same ease as everyone else.

By Ty C. from Niagara High School in Wisconsin

People need to be able to get the same opportunities as other people. Just because children are born in a low income house or in a foster care system they have a harder chance to become successful. The difficulty to become successful should not be as big of a difference between the rich born children and the poor born children. It iscompletely unfair that people have to start a lot lower than other people. Of course not everyone should just get to be rich and successful, but the people who put in the work and are efficient should, and people should not be successful purely based on the family they come from.
