The American Dream

Mon, 01/06/2014 - 10:54 -- eborjes

Do you know theres families being seperated? 

People being hated, cause a green card ain't incorporated into their belongings

People longing for a better life, they risk their lives, it's do or die, some call it suicide 

to cross a river or a dessert is to pick the lesser of to evils, which would u choose 

knowing its a lose or lose, and even if you make it across you'll face abuse by the natives, 

who say this country is the greatest but refuse to share the wealth, but they never felt what is like to

be disliked cause of the color of their skin, what happend to love, patience and tolerance?

Since when is the pursuit of happiness a sin? Why must you put my people through 

all of this?
