While in San Francisco covering the 75th Anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge for the Epoch Times Newspaper, I stopped by Chinatown and saw this amazing mural of the American flag.
I'm not sure what I felt when I first saw it. My first thoughts were, I love the light... as if the rays were highlighting the American Dream.
My parents immigrated from Korea. They didn't go to college and are still working on their English but they worked hard to put us through school. To them that was their greatest accomplishment, giving us an education they never had.
I wonder what this American Dream means to immigrant families today, or if it has just become what it is in this photo - a passing backdrop - waiting for some light to set the stage for a new generation of dreams.
