Sample introductory paragraph

Since Christopher Columbus set sail for the new world, America has promised a better life for anyone willing to work hard. For many, the American Dream is the idea that with hard work, anything is possible. In John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men, the American Dream gives hope to a group of poor migrant workers in California during the depression.
