As I sit writing this on the evening of this President's day, I am thankful for the leadership what we have had here in America, that has guided our country from a rag-tag group of colonists, to one of the mightiest countries on earth.
I hope that we remember the lofty principles that our country was founded on and the leaders who helped fashion us. It is understandable why we give these presidents the lion's share of our affection. After all, one is the father of our country and the other preserved the union. But each president -- in ways large and small -- has contributed to this republic and made America what many of us believe her to be: exceptional.
