American Solder Dream – Muorwel Malual

“The people are so busy dreaming the American dreams, fantasizing about what they could be or have a right to be, that they’re all asleep at the switch, consequently we are living in the age of human error” says Florence King. As a person who was born and raised in South Sudan, a country located in eastern Africa. I had lives those American dreams, when my younger brother and I were little boys. Early 1990s I told my younger brother that in the future I will enlist myself in the United States Army because is a top Military in the world. He gave me funny look, and said to me, I don’t think so dear brother Muorwel, because you are not in America land yet to become their solder, and you don’t speak English language well. We were argued about it, then we fought each other pushing one another. After few days my brother and I we were reading newspapers about the Gulf war between the U.S Army troops and Iraqi government when it forces invaded and annexed Kuwait 1991. I told my younger brother again about my American Solder dream job. We were argued over the idea for the second time again, but our friend spurted my idea. Because of conflict in South Sudan I left the country for Egypt let 1999. I stayed there as a refugee, then I arrived in Denver 2004. Two years leader I enlisted myself in the United States Army, so my American solder dream become reality. I want to Iraq after I ended my combat zone training 2007. I stayed over one year as an active duty in Iraq, then come back to U.S and transferred the Army Receive for rest of duty. I visited my family this year and we met with my younger brother after long time. He still remember our argument about my American solder Dream back then 1990s. I personally forgot about our complex, but my younger brother learn to compensate and listen to me with respecting my ideas as well.

All in all, “A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work” as Colin Powell says. I really agree that if anyone have a dreams, and never gives up her/his dreams, but work hard for it. In the end he/she will achieve the dreams.
