THE IRON PEN by Daniel Hite

February 22, 2012

Happy Birthday to my favorite President

George Washington…”first in war, first in peace, first in the hearts of his countrymen.”

Although largely forgotten by most Americans, Washington’s “Farewell Address” is still remembered and read in its entirety on his birthday every year in the U.S. Senate. I encourage you to read his prophetic words as they speak to the great concerns of our country even in 2012. Washington’s protective ideals for America are a template for contemporary governmental reform. I challenge you to read his words and see if it is not so. If his message is read and heeded, I believe George Washington will be “first in the hearts of his countrymen” once again.
