Land Of Opportunity American Ways
1,153 wordsThe area in American life reflecting the greatest desire to change is immigration. Immigrants come to America hoping for and wanting a better life.

Ways Of Thinking Beginning Of The Story
1,145 wordsI do believe that Sara Smolenskys experience does support the stereotype of upward mobility in industrial America.

Beset by forces that threaten their survival and their dignity, many manage to survive with dignity. Others succumb, however, to criminal behavior that endangers not only society at large but their own families and communities.
