Presidents Day

U.S. Presidents, #1 - 44

U.S. Presidents, #1 – 44

I guess it’s not cool to celebrate Presidents Day anymore, but I am anyway.

 

If you travel the world and watch mothers gathering their day’s water in streams where cattle roam, you find a new appreciation for government, rules, and laws.

    • I had the same question, Sue, but I think some people feel government and politics are corrupt and useless. But like I said, I don’t think they have experienced a lot of the world. There’s nothing like travel, as you well know, to open windows we have never opened before, and to celebrate all the different ways of life. I hope your week is wonderful, Sue, and thanks so much for stopping by. 😀

  1. Very touchy subject to explain if you were to ask me. All I can say is that our Country have changed some through the years, but not for the better. But I’m sure we’ll get it back to where it was, when people from all the world saw us as the Country of truth and Freedom for all!
    Thanks Jet! 🙂

  2. It honours you to stick to culture and tradition dear Jet.We shouldn’t wonder why we lose National ID.Most impressive photo-collage with the 44 portraits!Have a wonderful new week! Hugs,Doda 🙂

    • Always a delight to hear from you dear Doda! Thanks so much for your kind and warm comments here. I am glad you enjoyed the photo collage, it was a deck of president cards and each president has a short bio on the back. I hope you, too, are enjoying a wonderful week, my dear friend. 😀 ♥

    thanks for this statement!

  4. I think it’s still fine. However, we once celebrated only Washington’s and Lincoln’s birthdays, which was a little more specific: one helped found the nation and set it on its course, and the other held it together. Celebrating all presidents as equals tends to diminish it a bit, IMHO. Changed under Nixon, if I recall correctly.

  5. We watched a streaming presentation on all the presidents of the US since its inception during that time. Great history, and yes, good to remember these polarizing and charismatic leaders and how they’ve changed us over the decades!
