Road to the White House

It seems that this is a popular place to live in Washington, DC. It's still very early in the race, and already a number of people say they are running for President. Certainly it isn't just because the White House is such an impressive place to live and to work.

Do you want to make a difference in this world?  One would think that a US President would say "yes" to that question.  How many of our Presidents really have made a difference though?  How many of them can be easily forgotten?

At no point during the campaign will I be telling you who to vote for, but I will say that getting involved is important.  If you believe in a candidate, let folks know it.  Vote!  It's our right and it does make a difference!  Hopefully we will choose a good one.  Hopefully we will choose someone who truly makes a difference.

Since November 1, 1800, this has been the home of the President of the United States. John Adams, on his second day in the house, he wrote a letter to his wife Abigail, which contained this prayer: I pray Heaven to bestow the best of blessings on this House, and all that shall hereafter inhabit it. May none but honest and wise men ever rule under this roof.  (Men needs to be changed to people, but other than that, I'll happily say) Amen.
