President’s Day Context

We the People

Whitney Houston sings the National Anthem – Star Spangled Banner

The art of progress is to preserve order amid change & to preserve change amid order ~ Alfred North Whitehead

In pursuit of progress I have curated some links that remind us where we have come from and also what actions we must take to continue to be relevant on honoring of the lives that have been lost for our freedom.

These two are my favorite Presidential quotes:

Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe ~ Abraham Lincoln

The problem in defense is how far you can go without destroying from within what you are trying to defend from without ~ Dwight D. Eisenhower

I’d also like this chance to make sure you know @TheDixonCenter founded by @DSutherland_TSP working to ensure Veterans know how much they are appreciated.
