American Mythology

November 28th, 2015 by Ken

I love the myths of American.   I love all those stories that I grew up on.

I love the myth of the Pilgrims and the first Thanksgiving РРGeorge Washington and the cherry tree РРBetsy Ross and the flag РРDaniel Boone, Davy Crockett  РLewis and Clark.

I love the myths of the Noble Savage, the American cowboy РРthe Oregon Trail Р Abraham Lincoln Р-the Alaskan Gold Rush РРthe Golden Gate Bridge РРRoute 66 РРthat any citizen can grow up to be president.

I love the idea of the American Dream – – that anyone – through hard work and perseverance can reach whatever goals they set for themselves.

And, while the reality doesn’t always live up to the stories – – I still believe in the America – as told by it’s myths and legends.
