Teddy Roosevelt!

Here are some pics of the kids at Teddy Roosevelt Island and one of his quotes that I love. Speaks a lot about the burden of the presidency and how strong a persons belief and will must be to continue our amazing experiment in Democracy- we are truly a great example to the world. I also liked his quotes on Manhood and Childhood....

The State

Ours is a Government
of Liberty
by through and under the law

A GREAT Democracy
has got be progressive or it will
soon cease to be great or a democracy

Order without Liberty
and Liberty without Order
are equally destructive

In popular government results worth having
can be achieved only by men who combine
Worthy Ideals
with practical good sense

If I must choose between
Righteousness and Peace
I choose Righteousness

  1. LOVE that quote. I think the good sense part is the most important. I am afraid that many of the decisions we are seeing made are being made without good sense. They just need you and me to make a few decisions! :)
