Ever since our Declaration of Independence was created people have been emigrating from their home countries to live the American dream This dream is stereotyped as a house with a white picket fence a well-manicured backyard and two little children running around doing what normal American children do However some people view the American dream as something much different be it living in a big city or on a small farm In Neighbor Rosicky the American dream is being able to provide for yourself while raising a family who knows how to love and knows how to give as well as receive One of the many themes of this story is hard work and Rosicky leads by example Never once during the story does he demonstrate the least bit of selfishness instead thinking only of others and teaching his sons to become selfless adults through hard work and generosity During the beginning half of the story Rosickys doctor informs him his heart is not in the shape it used to be He attributes this to the amount of time Rosicky spends in his fields working as a farmer When Rosicky hears the news he is immediately taken aback trying to think of what he would do around the house without having the fields to work in He expresses to the doctor that he does not think it is right for a man to be in the kitchen saying his place is out in the field The doctor is persistent telling Rosicky that if he does not cut back on the hard labor his heart will soon give out Even with this information it is hard for Rosicky to accept the fact that he will no longer be able to put in the hours he is accustomed to This demonstrates the strong feelings Rosicky has for providing for his family Even with his life in danger he is unwilling to compromise his familys
