There are times in history when providence takes a hand and the absolute right man for the job appears. During our nation's struggle for independence and the birth of the United States of America we were blessed with George Washington.
Today is President's Day. We used to celebrate George's birthday, but now we just lump it together with all the other guys who found there way into the presidency. I think it is very sad that the man who set the example of what an American leader should be is not remembered by more then department store sales on a generic Federal holiday.
I don't suppose he would care. He was a modest and retiring man. But by not remembering those who built and began this country, we are losing the best part of ourselves as a people. We are losing sight of what America is supposed to be. We are losing sight of what we as Americans are supposed to be.
Happy Birthday George!
