Dear Santa

  We all have heard of the American Dream of being able own ones home, in which a family could be raised, children sent off to college and retire in our golden years.  This American Dream is fast slipping away from most, why?  I believe as a nation that our success was built on a sense of community and a lack of selfishness.  Over the last thirty years, there has been an effort to rewrite history and change the meaning of that American Dream.  Self-centered individuals falsely claim that the American Dream is to get rich and not just rich but super rich.  This has left millions behind and increased the size of those impoverished.  Many are without a job, a home or even food, while the “me first” crowd gorges themselves.  We must remember that a society is judged not on how well those at the top are doing but rather how those at the bottom are treated.
