First time visiting Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. National Memorial was quite powerful for me. ever more so at night when his quotes were aglow on the walls. His words etched into stone only provided hope but also a bit of despair that they are still goals to achieve this many decades later. If you haven't visited yet, I encourage you to go at night when there are fewer tourists and you can be still with his words and your thoughts.
Lets actually listen to those who came before us, we could stand on their shoulders & learn from their experience...📖

Abraham Lincoln, October 1859.
He was an American statesman and lawyer who served as the 16th President of the United States from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. Lincoln led the United States through its Civil War—its bloodiest war and perhaps its greatest moral, constitutional, and political crisis.

The log cabin experienced a renaissance during the interwar period, when Americans flocked in greater numbers to log cabin retreats, historians published new and more imaginative histories about the structure’s role in the States’ evolution and, in a new development, the government built whole log cabin towns for farmers displaced by drought and depression. 🌲🌲 Above, one such village, the Matanuska Colony in Alaska, circa 1935, from the Alaska State Library. 🌲🌲 Learn more in "The Log Cabin: An Illustrated History," out Nov. 7.

Enjoying your Sunday? Henry Ford is credited for creating a five day work week (along with labor unions) in 1914. In 1938 FDR signed the Fair Labor Standards Act effectively creating weekends and 40 hour work weeks. The rest of world soon followed to match up with the world markets.
When former Presidents get together it provides a wonderful opportunity to demonstrate national solidarity and respect for the Office of the President. Above is the @associatedpressmm picture of the five former Presidents raising funds for hurricane relief posted online a few hours ago. Below is a photograph (detail) by David Hume Kennedy taken in 1991 on the dedication of the Ronald Reagan Library @smithsoniannpg of Bush, Reagan, Carter, Ford, and Nixon. #portraits #nationalportraitgallery #americaspresidents #ushistory

”I do love you though — and can love you without kissing you every time I see you and I hope you understand that.” — A then Jacqueline Bouvier in a letter to a boyfriend in 1947
