I realize now that the most important thing that is an American Dream — in looking at people living in other countries, in looking at the life my sisters had not growing up in this country — is the American freedom to create your own identity. I think that’s uniquely American. In no other country do you have that opportunity. It’s not to say that everything will happen fairly and the way that you want. But I think that this is a country where that opportunity — to be as wild as you want, as generous as you want, as crazy as you want, as artistic as you want, that all of that, the whole range — exists. And we have a Constitution, a tradition, a culture that supports that. I hope it continues to support that. I hope it especially continues to support the arts in that direction. It is that self-determination of your identity, to define what it means to be an American, and that nobody defines that for you.
