My Thoughts

America, a place of dream and ambition

A country where all dreams and ambition can come true. The United States is a highly developed country. Continuously ranks high in measures of socioeconomic performance. It accounts for approximately a quarter of global GDP and is the world’s largest economy by GDP at market exchange rates. By value, the United States is the world’s largest importer and the second-largest exporter of goods. Although its population is only 4.2% of the world total, it holds 29.4% of the total wealth in the world, the largest share held by any country.

Making up more than a third of global military spending, it is the foremost military power in the world and is a leading political, cultural, and scientific force internationally.

People migrate from many developing and small countries in hopes of a better lifestyles, education, bigger career options, better livelihood for their families. America has been a home for many.

Watching friends or relative working in US have a better life and status in the society creates more hope for other people to grab more opportunities to migrate in US. Some go through the long and tough legal process and some take the shortcuts to migrate by the illegal ways.

Most of the time the reason is because of the financial burden or to escape the community disputes to save their family.

Life of Migrators in America

Life of migrated immigrant is tough in America. Many illegal immigrants enter America with one dream, take a nice job, and stay out of problem, so that your family can have a better life. People try many possible ways to stay over here.

There are many people in America who are not born on the born in the US soil, but have spent their entire life and have build up a good life for themselves in this country. US are practically their homeland than their original country. Why should they be blame for this? Everyone thrives for a better life, isn’t it?

Legal Authorities

You can’t even blame the legal authorities of America. They are pariahs criminal who menace American neighborhood, take American jobs, sap American resources and exploit American generosity. These illegal immigrants are ones who should be expelled from US.

of such people innocent immigrants who actually live a honest life has to suffer the tough and rude consequences of the Government towards them.

Shattered Life

Being illegal Immigrants in US has its own consequences. There are some people who have already built up a good life for them and their family. Their kids go to a decent schools and colleges; they work one or two jobs, just to provide a good livelihood for their family. Everything goes well until they are hit hard by the legal authorities. All dreams and hope shattered by a piece of paper. Life is never the same.

My Review:

Not all love stories has a happy ending, but some has to go through a tough struggle, which might break you. This love story passes the test of time. It’s worth reading.

About the Novel: The Sun is also a star

The story of a Girl, A Boy and the Universe

NATASHA : I’m a girl who believe in science and facts. Not fate. Not destiny. Or dreams that will never be true. I’m definitely not the kind of girl who meets a cute boy on a crowded New York City street and falls in love with him. Not when my family is twelve hours away from being deported to Jamaica. Falling in love with him won’t be my story.
DANIEL : I’ve always been the good son, the good student, living up to my parent high expectation. Never the poet. Or the dreamer. But when I see her, I forget about all that. Something about Natasha makes me think that fate has something much more extraordinary in store- for both of us
The Universe : Every moment in our lives has brought us to the single moment. A million future lie before us. Which one will come true?

Happy Reading!!!
