Choices for a Rising Generation
Obama, Barack
Teaching Tolerance, n34 p45 Fall 2008
This article presents an essay by the 2008 Democratic Party Presidential Nominee. This essay focuses on the role of the rising generation in bringing about real change in America. The author contends that, at this historic moment, Americans must ask their rising generation to serve their country as Americans always have--by working on a political campaign or joining the military, by doing community service or relief work abroad. Because that's how real change has always come--from ordinary people coming together to do extraordinary things; from all those, young and old, black, white, and brown, who were willing to do what was risky and what was hard and put their shoulders to the wheel of history, and turn it towards opportunity and equality and justice for all.
