It’s President’s Day. Happy Birthday to all of our leaders! Last night I asked my family during dinner who was their favorite president and why. The answers were :
Abraham Lincoln – because he helped people and freed the slaves
Barack Obama – because he’s our president and he’s nice
George Washington – what a great man. Led our troops and led our country.
Ronald Reagan – was able to end crisis without wars and was able to help bring down the Berlin Wall.
