The dreamers and eccentrics in our culture are the ones who make to there goals no matter how may people says its impossible I think our culture discourages uniqueness and dreamers because we don't think its possible. We also don't like when someone we know gets more in life then ourselves. I worked at sears and one of my co workers had a dream to be an opera singer and everyone thought he was good but never thought someone from marion ohio could actually become one. He left about 6 months ago for his big break.
