Moving to United States was the most tragic experience for me. It all started when my dad came running to my mom. He said, “Consolate”, my mom’s name, “our name is up.” “We might be going to America,” and my mom started screaming. So I ran up to her, I thought it was something bad but when I got to her, instead she was screaming, laughing, and happy. That’s when I ask her, “Mom why are you so happy?” She touched my shoulder and said Asifiwe, “mwana to ra giye amerika.” “We are going to America really!” I scream out.
When I first heard my mom and dad talking about moving to the United States, I was so upset thinking about my friends, school, teachers, and my grandparents. I realized that my life would be different and everything was not going to be the same. My mom didn't want to come, but my dad loved to come, so my mom came too. i didn't know what it was like, so i was so scared and thinking how my life would be in the United States.

In the historical fiction book, "Ashes of Roses," the author Mary Jane Auch, shows how achieving the American Dream is both achievable and un-achievable. This book takes place in 1911 and it tells the story of how the American Dream and America is a very hard place to get used to, because you can't achieve the American Dream easy. The American Dream was to many immigrants now and then, to accomplish something important so they knew they really belonged here. The main character, Rose achieved her dream halfway and the author does a good job explaining how.
Have you ever dreamed to do something in a different country? To have a better salary than the last one? Well, it changes, some dreams become reality. Some dreams just crash down, torn apart. Most dreams are half achieved and need to be accomplished over the years. The character Sundara in Children of The River, didn’t achieve her American Dream when she was here when she arrived. Even though she came to America safely from the war in Cambodia, she didn’t achieve it when she was in America. Her main American Dream is to be a doctor and help her people back in Cambodia.
Everyone comes to America for a certain reason. Some reasons may be for a better life or maybe a better chance of living. They all have the same common goal which is to achieve the American Dream. There is many examples of what these immigrants go through to achieve even a little part of that dream. One example is the book, “Behind the Mountains” by Edwidge Danticat, this is a perfect example of a achievement of the American Dream the protagonist reached.
