A principle lost

We were recently watching a documentary on PBS. One of the points made was that the immigrants and children of immigrants in the early 1900’s knew that to embrace the American dream meant that they would have to be willing to work for it. That is a principle that is lost on so many in our country today.

We have too many who think that the dream is something they are owed without putting forth any effort. Or what many of us refer to as the ‘everybody gets a trophy’ generation.
