Now you have learned about the excitement and problems that the immigrants experienced as they came to new lands, and you have told their story. You have more than likely come to realize that the United States has a history of offering opportunity to those who are willing to work hard. 

As you become more aware, you will see that there are still many people who come as immigrants today. Try to identify similarities in the situations they faced and the situations modern day immigrants might encounter.

If you find yourself moving to a new place, and you are facing discouraging moments, be of good cheer and remember that if those before you were able to overcome such difficulties, you surely can.
