#209962 - 03/11/13 03:44 AM has vs had
For so many years, the meaning of the American dream has / had been changed from generation to generation.
Which bold word should I use? Thanks.

has implies that change is still possibly happening; had implies that no more change is likely._________________________

For many more years the meaning of the American dream may/ might still change from generation to generation.
Which bold word could/should/would best be used here?
