Why Hello There, Mr. President

Happy Presidents Day! In all of the mess of trying to get papers graded and entered, and otherwise trying to use the day off to get caught up, I nearly forgot the "reason for the season", if you will.

On CNN Student News the other day, Mr. Carl Azuz was talking about the crazy history behind the holiday and its controversial origins. It's really quite interesting. Anyway, let's try to think of where this country might be without the likes of George Washington or Abraham Lincoln.

Kind of makes me wish I was at the Lincoln Memorial right now. I could stand in front of that thing all day.
