Let's Honor our First President!

Today is President's Day, and since I can find nothing honorable about our current President, I've decided to tell you all a little about our first President, General George Washington.
(The following facts are from the book The American Patriot's Almanac by William J. Bennett and John T.E. Cribb. I highly suggest this book for all Americans- especially since our country is in grave danger of losing its identity...)

Washington was born on February 22, 1732 in Westmoreland County, Virginia. He was a great general in our nation's first fight for freedom, leading American forces and pressing his troops onward, constantly cheering them on and reminding them of the important freedoms for which they fought. As Marquis de Lafayette witnessed, "Washington rode all along the lines amid the shouts of the soldiers, cheering them by his voice and example and restoring to our standard the fortunes of the fight. I thought then, as now, that never had I beheld so superb a man."

After leading the country to freedom, General Washington then oversaw the writing of the Constitution, and finally served as our first President- living by the Constitution and for the American people.

I hope our country will remember our brave founder, and strive to restore the great ideals George Washington once protected and promoted.

And May God Bless America!
