Patriotic Medley - This is my Country, God Bless America, This land is your land, America the Beautiful.mp3

Here is a great place to be inspired.

You will always find the American flag
waving, our American eagle flying
and flowers always in bloom along with
support for the animal site and the
support for our troops.

If you fill your heart with regrets 
of yesterday 
and the worries of tomorrow, 
you have no today 
to be thankful for.

What is Presidents Day?

 Why do we celebrate it?

On February 18th, our nation will celebrate what is now referred to as Presidents Day. it is meant to honor and remember the pas presidents of the U.S. and their contributions to creating the country it is today.
To many states, the day remains Washington’s Birthday. February 22 is President George Washington’s actual birthday. Our first president was elected to that post by a unanimous vote in 1789. His birthday was made a national holiday in 1885.
Often referred to as the Father of Our Country, Washington inspired his group of ragtag troops to victory over the British, and later presided over the Constitutional Convention. Both Washington D.C. and the state of Washington are name after him. The monument bearing his name is one of the most recognizable tributes in our nation’s capital. The U.S. Senate takes a moment to read his Farewell Address every year, a tradition that dates back to 1862.
Washington’s Birthday is now celebrated on the third Monday of February each year, but to some states, it is knows as Presidents Day. Advocates in the 1960′s wanted to honor both Washington and President Abraham Lincoln, whose birthday is February 12, on a single federal holiday. Lincoln is known for his Civil War presidency during which he freed the slaves, but saw the nation break apart and begin the Civil War. His famous Gettysburg Address is considered one of the greatest speeches of all time. Contrary to popular belief, Washington’s birthday has never been officially changed to Presidents Day.

"We gain strength, and courage, and confidence

by each experience in which we really stop to look

fear in the face...we must do that which

we think we cannot."
~ Eleanor Roosevelt

"Life is a series of experiences, each of which makes

us bigger, even though it is hard to realize this. For the

world was built to develop character, and we must learn

that the setbacks and griefs which we endure help

us in our marching onward."
~ Henry Ford

"The best thing about the future is that

it comes only one day at a time."
~ Abraham Lincoln
