2: Has the United States of America always been a hopeful nation? Do you agree or disagree with Obama’s quote?
CHA3U1 American History Independent Study “Hope is what led a band of colonists to rise up against an empire; what led the greatest of generations to free a continent
and heal a nation; what led young women and young men to sit at lunch counters and brave fire hoses and march through Selma and Montgomery for freedom′s cause. Hope is
what led me here today–with a father from Kenya, a mother from Kansas; and a story that could only happen in the United States of America. Hope is the bedrock of this
nation; the belief that our destiny will not be written for us, but by us; by all those men and women who are not content to settle for the world as it is; who have
courage to remake the world as it should be.” BARACK OBAMA, speech, Jan. 3, 2008 Inquiry Question: Has the United States of America always been a hopeful nation? Do
