February 19th President’s Day

If you are or were, a President, this is your day. Most of us think it is a day to celebrate the Presidency of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, but it actually a day to celebrate all the Presidents we have ever had (In the Untied States).

Now you may, or may not like some of the Presidents but you have to admit it’s a tough job no matter who is in office. You can’t please everybody, and sometimes you can please anybody.

We have celebrate those who have served as President since 1968. Lyndon B. Johnson was our President in 1968 and I doubt he felt very respected. Perhaps that’s why this day got stated in the first place! I cannot actually understand why anyone would want to be President, I understand why we need one, but what a thankless job.

But we always seem to find somebody! Or they find us? Many have been war heroes, others business men, lawyers, actors and many have been qualified, and others not so much so. But if you stop and think about it, what makes someone qualified to be President?

Wel, honor those Presidents you choose today, disparage those you don’t like but be thankful either way that you didn’t have to face what they faced every day of their lives!

How to celebrate – Pick at least one President you like and celebrate them on this day. Try and name all the President without looking. Trump is the 45th (But how many served more than one term!) Imagine a President as King, pick the one you think would have been the best.
