History of Audacity to Hope Day
Hope is an optimistic state that expects a positive outcome no matter how worse the circumstances. It is a unique driving force that drives us to do better and strive to be our best selves. This positive emotion also predicts a happier future filled with opportunities and leads to an easier life. This word often appears in many languages of the world to refer to optimism and positive actions. Common phrases such as "hope against hope", "hope appears eternal" and "hope for the best" are some of the most common phrases in the English language containing the word "hope".
The day is also dedicated to President Barack Obama, who wrote the book, "Hope: Thinking About Rediscovering the American Dream." Published in 2006 when Obama was a senator, the book is about Obama and his own courage to hope to make him America's first Black president! His inspiration for the phrase “audacity to hope” came from a sermon of Pastor Jeremiah Wright. He said that “…take the one rope you have left and have the courage to hope.”
