I suppose most of us have people we admire.I have many. I wanted to share with you a few of mine that I believe made the USA a better place.
They were men who dared to dream
and they formed the blueprint of a nation.
Listening to their heads,hearts and souls,
they served with unfailing dedication.
Washington was our founding father,
a great military leader was he.
He believed in the creation of America,
a place where men, could be free.
Jefferson was a man of many talents,
seems there was nothing he couldn't do.
He was a brilliant lawyer
and a noted architect too.
Lincoln wrote speeches,
that could heal a nation's heart.
He helped put our country together,
when civil war had torn it apart.
Kennedy made us believe in ourselves,
he said, we could go to the moon.
We waited for him to show the way,
but he was taken from us,too soon.
King was never made President.
His dream was to end segregation.
He said, all men were created equal.
This stirred the thinking of our nation.
Reagan rode in from the west.
An actor who wanted more.
He cherished America's ideals
and loved her,to his core.
These are only a few.
Many have shown us the way.
From a strong and freedom loving nation,
thank you all,on President's day.
