On this date

On this date in 1921, former US President William Howard Taft was sworn in as the 10th Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court. He is the only person to have held both offices.

On this date in 2007 Lady Bird Johnson, who was not only the 43rd First Lady of the United States, but also a very accomplished businesswoman, died at the age of 94. Mrs Johnson also spent much of her life working on beautification projects and she founded (with actress Helen Hayes) the National Wildflower Research Center.

The talented Yul Brynner was born on this date in 1920. The award winning Russian-American actor was also an accomplished director, photographer, author, and musician.
On this date one year ago in 2013, energetic transgender activist Jazzie Collins died, just days after leading another successful Trans March through San Francisco.
Many important things have happened on this date in history.  You can add to that.  Go out and do something for others.  Be the groundbreaker.  Be the pioneer.  Make a difference.  Do it today!
