I began reading our First President’s address and it struck a cord with me. All the issues and themes we discuss today in America are covered in his farewell address. Instead of me trying to write something myself for President’s Day. I would rather lay silent, step back and let our First President George Washington speak to the nation again. His words are powerful, honest, and deep.
Today, two hundred forty-three years ago brave men of the Second Continental Congress stood against the tyranny of a monarchy. In standing against that tyranny they declared their Independence from its reign.
