There are some lucky ones who remember fondly the urban community they initially grew up in where immigrants came to this country to find a place for themselves. Their first taste of the American Dream was to place their feet upon American soil and to find a place to live in a community that welcomed them in as fellow immigrants searching for the opportunities and freedoms that America afforded.
Then, all of the sudden too many jobs left the country and many of the new generation lost their homes. Somehow the American Dream had turned into the American Scream and the land of opportunity became the land of despair. There is no land of opportunity if there are no opportunities. It had become not a government for the people but a government that did to the people.
This book depicts one possibility of how we can still reverse an oncoming Tsunami of devastation.
Join the journey to the fictional East Side neighborhood of Mount Joy where the residents live and work together in a self sustainable environment where the American Dream is not focused on monetary riches but the riches of finding one’s internal self in an atmosphere of equal support and encouragement.
