Food for Thought . . . Words to Live By

At the suggestion of our daughter, we sought out the FDR Memorial while we were in DC recently. I knew nothing about it, so I wasn't ready for its emotional impact. I remember our daughter saying--back when G. W. Bush was president--she wished our president would walk through it every morning before he started work.
I felt the same way--only I'd like to prescribe it for every senator and representative, as well. During a slow walk through the four outdoor rooms, you'll find enough poignant, pithy statements carved into stone to take your breath away.

I recommend seeing it to everyone who has any work, business, or vacation time in our nation's capitol, although you might feel discouraged at how little progress we have made.

Perfect thought as we slog our way through healthcare reform.

My hub and I live within easy driving distance to D.C. The
FDR Memorial is one of our favs. I doubt that Bush could spell for some of the other members of Congress, humph!
