    a day of destiny

    Today is a day of destiny!” yelled Derek Durkin, 58. “Today is the day the people of Scotland reclaim our nation.

    Can any native paraphrase the underlined part?

    Thanks!

    Re: a day of destiny

    "Destiny" is a course of events that is predetermined by events in the past. Mr. Durkin believed that an Independent Scotland was an inevitable result of past actions. It turned out that he was wrong.
