We are the dream that other people dream.
The land where other people land …
Where we fools dumbly thrive ourselves.
“America” is more than a nation — it’s an idea shared by many people around the world. The thought of living free each day is so strong that thousands make the journey to our shores. We sometimes forget this, being so caught up in our daily lives and frustrations that we grow numb to the American miracle.
Ray Bradbury, in our July/August 2009 issue, wrote a poem reminding us how wonderful the country is and how, despite what we may think about America, “We are the dream that other people dream.”
