Good Ol’ George
According to a buzzfeed quiz, Which founding father is your soul mate? if I were a colonial, bonnet-wearing babe from back in the day,I’d have apparently had the hots for George Washington.
I’m not usually the kind of gal who likes pony-tale toting men. However, looking past the pony-tail, I read on. It seems I’m attracted to “raw power” and “alpha males.”
Apparently I “want the best or nothing at all.”
Can’t argue with that.
The last few days I’ve been in Philadelphia (city of brotherly love), enjoying a thorough and much-needed review of American history. This city is the birthplace of our nation as it is today; a place where the presence of our founding fathers is palpable and George is definitely in the midst. Today I felt him at the National Constitution Center when I came across his beautiful, awe-inspiring words:
“…I do not conceive that we are more inspired — have more wisdom — or possess more virtue than those who will come after us. The power under the constitution will always be with the people.”
Our country was gifted with an incredible first leader; a wise, humble human being full of hope for the future, full of faith in the people.
Today, I kind of fell in love with George. I fell in love all over again with America, too.
“Truth will ultimately prevail where there is pains to bring it to light.” — George Washington
