FC: The American Dream
1: Obstacles: ~Age ~Finances ~Education ~Economy ~Violence ~Sports | What the American Dream means to me is being able to live freely without any concerns or obstacles preventing you from achieving your dream.. Being that I"m a young male and today's economy is not at its peak, it is difficult to find a job. When sport seasons end, and I have no job to occupy my time, it may become easier to develop violent habits outside of school.
2: Walt Disney Just like thousands of American's today, Walt Disney did not become a successful cartoonist on his first attempt. Before becoming successful with Mickey Mouse, as a child, Disney sat in his room doodling silly cartoons. He had an early dream to become a famous cartoonist. As a teenager, Disney created a character called, " Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. " Being so young, Disney lost the rights of Oswald to Al Michaels, an ABC sports commander. Disney decided to take a break from drawing for a while, but he small taste of success that came with Oswald inspired Disney to draw Mickey Mouse. Mickey Mouse was the character that first lead to Disney's success.

4: Walt Disney could have easily given up on his dream to become a famous cartoonist and entertain America. Instead of letting sour people and critics pull him down, Disney continued to pursue his dream. He didn't let the loss of his character, " Oswald the Lucky Rabbit" hold him back from his passion. He made the decision to move on and protect his dream from relinquishing itself to failure. | Hold On
5: Ever since I was a little kid, I've always wanted to be a video game designer, but with the drop in employment, my chances of employment in the gaming industry are growing slimmer and slimmer. Now, I have decided to pursue my dream in the government. The government is always going to be around as long as this country has to be ran.
6: Walt Disney did not succeed on his own. He was inspired by his brother, Roy O. Disney. His brother guided and supported him through his loss of Oswald. He helped him to create his mass empire of American loving cartoons. He wasn't supported by his parents the during his entire career, but his brother, Roy, never left his side. | A Shoulder to Lean On
