Hannah Buchanan Why Im Optimistic About our Nations Future !

The United States is the fourth largest country in the world with 3.15 million

people. The U.S. has a democratic government that doesnt always agree on certain topics. Even though our government has shut down due to disagreement between the Democratic and Republican parties, I am still optimistic about our nations future. Im optimistic because the United States has very intelligent people who can advance us through technology, the U.S. has also seen some pretty terrifying events and our country still thrived and moved on, and lastly the position of the U.S. is still ranked number one. ! The technological and industrial history of the United States development

describes it as the most technologically advanced nation in the world. Our nation has invented and created many devices that aid in helping and creating a safer and easier world. The United States contains very intelligent people and these people, like ourselves will keep creating and using our minds to come up with robotics, hand-held devices, and scientic equipment that is used in all sorts of different ways. The intelligence that is used in technology advancement brings hope for our country. ! Granted that almost every country has their time of hurt and pain, but most of

these counties come through those times. The United States is one of these counties. They have seen national poverty, war, and horric acts of terrorists. The Great Depression was the worst economic crisis in the U.S. history. From 1931 to 1940 unemployment was always in the double digits. World War II marked the end to this economic crisis and supplied jobs to 17 million unemployed people in 1939. These two

events both hurt and brought up our economy. Lastly on September 11, 2001 the United States was attacked by the terrorist group, al-Qaeda. Almost 3,000 people died, these attacks pained the entire country but after the capture and killing of Osama bin Laden the United States citizens were given peace, and justice was served. ! Lastly, the United States is one of the largest economies in the world. Our

country has the most powerful military. If there is another attack on our country we can always rely on our military to protect us. The U.S. also is in alliance with other countries, this means that the U.S. and other countries have signed a treaty saying that they will cooperate with one another. Even though our government is shut down at the moment, knowing that the United States is a leading country gives me hope that what ever problems we run into, we will climb our way out and thrive more than ever. ! Given these points I feel optimistic about our nations future. I strongly believe

there is hope for our country. Our country has new technology everyday, and we see new devices that help benet our country. Secondly, the U.S. has gone through the Great Depression, World War II, and 9/11. Each time the United States has returned thriving. Lastly, the position of the United States gives hope in a way that it shows that the United States is still on top. We have the most powerful military and our alliances with other countries gives us support if we need it.
