Happy Presidents’ Day

George Washington. Thomas Jefferson. Abraham Lincoln. Franklin Roosevelt.

America has produced brilliant, bold, and inspiring leaders. These presidents shaped our nation, culture, and society. They guided the American public through harrowing events and called upon the best traits of our national character. Admittedly, they were not without their faults and failings. But, who isn’t?

Right now, we direly need leadership rooted in courage, honesty, and wisdom. Our founding fathers looked to ancient Greece and Rome for guidance and insight. On this holiday, take a moment and study our own past. The answers to our future might very well await us there.
