Amazing how this day falls after Valentine’s Day. It seems like we always have a hate/love affair with our Presidents. Although the day was created in 1968 our relationship with our Presidents has been rocky since the first. Many thought George Washington wanted to be King. He didn’t, that’s what he had just finished fighting a war over, but people gathered their own thoughts and then projected them into society. I often wonder how we would feel if people, most of us totally unqualified to choose who will be President, just kept their mouths shut. I feel like everyone’s life would be better. Because we are a movie star, a truck driver, a hobo or whoever, never has, and never will, qualify us to become a voice for the people. We are entitled to our opinion but to share that with others, to me, shows a total selfish attempt to mold the world as they see it. Just saying. You want to tell us who should be President? Run for the office yourself.
How to celebrate – Celebrate our Presidents, love them or hate them. Determine the qualities that suit yourself to make a President. (Bet the only one you can come up with is yourself!) Honor those who have actually tried to make your life better.
