On October 4, 1822, Rutherford Birchard Hayes was born in Delaware, Ohio. Rutherford B. Hayes became the nineteenth U.S. president in 1877. Hayes was the first president to host the Easter Egg Roll for children on the White House Lawn. Hayes died in 1893 at his Spiegel Grove estate in Fremont, Ohio.
History is who we are and why we are the way we are.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice.
I did get a chance to visit the Spiegel Grove Estate of President Hayes earlier this summer and put some pictures of it in my post at the time. It's great that lovely places like that have been maintained for the public to enjoy and to remember the great people that lived there. Not many of us will be remembered like our presidents are but still each one of us has an important job to do in life.
All of us whether we are rich and famous or poor and infamous can take the time to be nice to others as we go through life. Just as this president took the time to provide an Easter egg roll to public, we can do some nice things for others too. It doesn't cost a cent to be nice. It's something we can all do.
Being kind is a vital way of making our own lives, and the lives of others, meaningful. You'll never regret being nice to someone. Others may forget you, but they won't forget the way you made them feel.
Hope you all have a nice day and remember to spread a little kindness along the way.
Carve your name on hearts, not on marble.
Charles H. Spurgeon
