Manifest Destiny

There are three interpretations of the phrase Manifest Destiny.

  1. The historical context: about expansion across the US continent ‘from sea to shining sea’
  2. The international interpretation: other places must be remade in America’s image
  3. My own view of the idea: that anyone can create their own future by the decisions they make. Destiny is manifested by what we choose to do. It’s another word to describe the future, where anything is possible, and our choices can take us wherever that may be.
