At its core, the American way of life boils down to one thing: opportunity.
That’s the ideal this country was founded on, its economy stands on and our individual and collective livelihoods depend on. It’s what people come to this country from other lands in search of. It’s the foundation of the American Dream.
The great thing about opportunity is it requires something of us. It requires ambition, dedication, accountability. It requires work.
And in many ways, work is something we, as Americans and as human beings, require as well.
