Who are we?
Question: What forces have shaped humanity most?
Jeanne Shaheen: Well certainly I think religious forces have had a huge impact and continue to, whether it’s a particular religion or a prophet or whatever. Certainly we wouldn’t be here in the United States if our forefathers hadn’t been concerned about religious persecution in Europe at the time the Pilgrims came over to Plymouth Rock. We wouldn’t see the same divisions if we hadn’t had the crusades. And that’s been something that’s influenced us through the centuries.
