“A nation’s greatness lies in its possibility of achievement in the present, and nothing helps it more than the consciousness of achievement in the past.” While in the national park museum in Medora I read this quote from former President Theodore Roosevelt.
As individuals and as a nation we look for wisdom to direct us forward. To lead our nation forward today the past needs to be acknowledged and respected, rather than the tearing down and destruction by our current presidency. We need to be careful to conserve and preserve our natural resources, our environment and programs that enrich and support the lives of every person.
