Just like in Cheaper by the Dozen, People today have dreams of having a loving family or being successful in life. People come to America to try to fulfill their American Dream, but the basis of all American Dream has the same meaning. The basis of the American Dream is to have a big family and to be successful.

After traveling all over the world from Europe to South America, meeting many religious people and publishing many books on the subject of saints, I hope my belief in Mrs. Mary Dempster being a saint can be taken seriously. I first came to know Mrs. Dempster at the age of ten; she was married to the towns Reverend Amasa Dempster and pregnant with their son Paul Dempster. Through a tragic accident, Mary suffered a head injury resulting her to give birth to Paul prematurely and for her to be diagnosed as ‘simple’ by the town people. Many people keep their distance from Mary because of peculiar habits but on my word, she was nothing but a heartfelt woman who loved life. In spite of everything, Mrs. Dempster in her life span has performed three miracles.

I don’t want to have kids when I am too old, I want to be able to watch them get married and have kids. I see my mother when she is with my niece and becoming a grandparent was one of the most joyful days of her life, I would love to experience that. I have had ups and downs through-out my life, but going through those obstacles has made me the sturdy person I am today.

He attended weekly Sunday masses and received the appropriate Sacraments: Baptism, Eucharist, Reconciliation, Confirmation, and much later, Marriage. Through childhood, adolescence, and young adulthood he and many of his peers never fathomed immigrating to America. It was something they would make fun of other people about because of how silly the idea seemed. He recounted a story in which a friend of his, Pedro, had immigrated to America and when he came back to visit my grandfather and his friends, Pedro had told them, “My name is Peter is now.” My grandfather and company believed that immigrating changed people, their values, and what they believed in.

They don’t really know why veterans wear their uniforms and talk to us at assemblies about some day or experience they had in Vietnam, World War II, Korea or even Iraq. Some of the kids even fall asleep during these old people’s speeches and don’t really care about what happen on D Day, Pearl Harbor or Midway Island, all they care about is not being in class learning english, math, science or history. But how does the youth of America benefit from the service and sacrifice of those veterans in uniforms at the assemblies or those men and women that never made it home?
Belkov Do not fail In my family we have a ritual to go from childhood to adult at the confirmation. When a child get confirmed there is a big celebration party after the church.

The day started with all my family and I went to the church where I would get confirmed, a two hour long ceremony.
