Why I am Optimistic About our Nation's Furure
Savannah Rippy

To be optimistic about something means to be hopeful and confident about it. The word optimistic can be applied to several things. Such as; a person, an idea, and to me, our Nation's future. When someone is optimistic about something, the person, idea, or thing usually means something to them, and America's future means something to me. It means a great deal to me because I live in a place where I have the freedom to make my own choices, have an opinion, and to worship our mighty God whom I love and serve . America also means something to me because it is a country that is worth fighting for. I am reminded every day of all the troops that have fallen and i am also reminded of the dedicated military that works so hard to make our home a better place. I am able to put all of my trust into my country's future and I will forever remain optimistic about it. There are so many reasons why I am so optimistic but a few reasons stand out to me. The three that stand out to me are because of the potentially strong upcoming generation, because of America's ability to stand back up after being defeated, and because of the knowledge and footsteps our past great leaders have left us. I am so optimistic about the generation to come. Right now we are teenagers and young adults but someday very soon we will be the examples and we will be the ones leading America. I have so much hope that we will not let our country down. I am optimistic because we have been shaped and molded into great people and we are so fortunate to live in a place where all things are possible. Our families, teachers, and friends have told us sometime along that anything is possible if you set your mind to it and that is why we are going to make awesome adults someday. We have the knowledge and the mindset to become anything we want. Whether we go into politics, peruse a career in medicine, work in school

    Optimism: hopefulness and confidence about the future. The warm-hearted feeling you receive when you take a step back and glance for a moment at the resilient, robust nation built around you. The nation where everyone is free to express their uniqueness in gender, race, religion, and sexual orientation. The nation with stout defense and solid guard throughout all branches of military. It’s not a surprise we have the world’s largest economy, and the dollar is the world’s reserve currency. We are the only Super Power on planet Earth, and that is something to be proud of. Something that should give you optimism when you think of our homeland’s future. As home to more than 316 million Americans, we have the potential to do great things. Things superior to Earth itself. America is a beacon of hope, hope for immigrants looking to start over and start living their lives anew, hope for technology advances in ways that are mind-blowing and seem unfeasible. Hope for energy, and living clean and green. And hope for the education of our future generations- those who will be running this powerhouse into the indefinite future and continuing our uphill battle to excellence. With so much in store for the United States of America, I am so optimistic about our nation’s future.…

    I don’t think we are all optimistic its ok to think that way but I think it’s just because the upper men like congress and the president have to think that way always that they makes us people think that way also to give us hope. But like the blacks and Hispanics yea I think they were optimistic because Obama gave them hope but then since really hasn’t fulfilled his duty that he promised their optimism went down. What Moyers says in the article he says how the pattern of history just kept doing down that we lost control of our economy because after World War 1 that’s when we got a cloud over the government. Each president we had failed to improve and that’s why our optimism staggered.…

    My vision for America is that I could see peace for this wonderful country, and great minds, and the future for mankind. If mankind keeps going it’s course like war or any other conflicts that is still going on to this. Day we would fall and loose everything that we hold so dear. We would lose our families and misunderstand how this path we still take will affect us. So basically what I am trying to say is that mankind needs to change its path and make a new one. We need to start over again so we can stop this childish conflict and get along with each other. We need to forgive not forget the ones we miss or look over.…

    Exploring Optimism Psy220

    So how is hopefulness and optimism related? Both terms are positive. Both terms are wonderful motivators. Hope is a dream and optimism makes the dream come true. Hopefulness is the emotion or feeling that keeps a person going and striving for, whatever it is that an individual wants (Peterson, 2000). Optimism is hopefulness and confidence about the future or the successful outcome of something (“Dictionary.com”, 1995). Some researchers feel that optimism differs from hopefulness in that optimism has a proactive component called planning. When contrasting hopefulness and optimism, optimism is usually based on logical concrete facts, for example statements like “I hope that the economy will improve” and “I am optimistic that the economy will improve”. The first statement can be made with no basis of fact or evidence to support it. We can be hopeful for anything at any time. The second statement however, communicates more confidence, optimism is usually based on evidence that can be judged or evaluated in terms of rational criteria (Snyder, 2000). Hopefulness and optimism are dissimilar in that hopefulness is situation specific and subject to change upon one’s own abilities. Optimism is an altogether elucidatory term that positive things will occur free of one’s capacity to do something.…

    Optimism is hard for me to achieve. I’ve been through so many tough times in my seventeen years and it is very difficult to stay positive. I’ve had to suffer through many broken bones and surgeries, depression and the things that go along with it, and also being bullied in school. I try to stay as optimistic as I can. Being positive and hoping for the best is about all I can do for myself. My life definitely has not been the best but even through all of the terrible things I’ve endured, I can still keep a positive outlook on things.…
