As it was just President’s Day and my son and daughter are both learning about the American Revolution and aspects of it, George Washington came to mind as a forward thinking man. Sure, there are more contemporary forward thinkers, but I took this photo in Philadelphia last year, and I love the way it came out. It was a cold, grey day, but the city always shines.
George Washington, along with all the men who fought for our country’s independence, set up a system of government that still works better than any other I know today; they were all brave, forward-thinking people. I have the utmost respect and admiration for what they did–for all of us Americans.
