Today is George Washington’s birthday

George Washington’s birthday is today.  Our First President was the model of virtue and integrity. Here are a few quotes from leaders of the day.

Gen. Henry Lee: “To his equals he was condescending, to his inferiors kind ... Vice shuddered in his presence, and virtue always felt his fostering hand. The purity of his private character gave effulgence to his public virtues.”

David Ramsay, military surgeon: “His private character, as well as his public one, will bear the strictest scrutiny. He ... carried the spirit of piety with him, both in his private life and public administration.”

Gen. Alexander Hamilton: “If virtues can secure happiness in another world, he is happy.”

My hat’s off to the greatest President that this Nation will ever have. The current Politicians in Washington are far removed from the kind of integrity that George Washington demonstrated on a daily basis.

Happy Birthday Mr. President.
