PRESIDENTS' DAY

February 16 is Presidents’ Day and a legal holiday in United States Of America. Some say it is Washingtons’ Day or Washingtons’ birthday. Actually, George Washingtons’ birthday was February 22, 1782 . Abrahams Lincolns’ birthday, which was on February 12, and Washingtons’ birthday, which was on February 22, was merged and had been celebrated as one every 3rd Monday of February. Included of course is to honor the other presidents of the United States. The merging of the two presidential birthdays as a federal holiday was observed since 1971 during the time of President Richard Nixon.

For me, Abraham Lincolns’ greatest work is his major contribution to abolish slavery during his time. Of course we rely on what our text books or writings passed on thru generations, or world history for that matter, tells us. We are not there in person to witness their accomplishments or the accomplishment of the other noble men proclaimed in history. However, if we will base on the documents presented, as has been the source of writings and text books, I presume! Linconls’ contribution in abolishing slavery is one basis to state that he was a man who treasured equality and fairness. It is sad that in the modern world, living in a concrete jungle, so to speak, confronted by cut throat predicaments, where survival of the fittest stands..fairness, so much as equality..had been..in times…taken for granted.

Two noble men contributed to their community and their country, George Washington, being the first president of the United States of America and Abraham Lincoln, being the 16th President of his Land.

Just a thought and a little information.

Have a nice day everyone!!
