One American Dream
Submitted by a colleague, Mr. David Pond. A worthy project. Show him some love:
As many of you know, the current economic environment is one of the worst we have experienced in decades. Many people have lost their jobs, their homes, and their dreams. Families have been broken apart and lives changed. Regardless of specifics, the “American Dream” has changed. It no longer means what it once did, especially to the youth generation (also called Gen-Y and the Millennials). This is due to the economic situation, as well as the connectivity we now have. What does the American Dream mean today? I want to find out.
“One American Dream?” is a documentary exploring the American Dreams of the youth generation. As a feature length documentary, “One American Dream?” will follow my journey as I travel around the country in search of how the vision of success has changed and what the American Dreams of today’s youth are. Following in the footsteps of previous generations I will travel on the train and bus talking to people the mainstream media often over look. This will give a voice to many different people who all have a story and a dream to tell.
I encourage all of you to visit the site, oneamericandream.com, comment, read and participate. I want to know your story and what your American Dream is.
