Happy Birthday, George Washington, pioneer, surveyor, inventor, soldier, statesman, first President of the United States. I grew up in a country that venerated our first president, and time has done little to tarnish his image. I respect the courage and sacrifice it took to lead the rough and tumble gang of militia from being several disconnected and chaotic gangs of short-term armed rabble to the instrument of war that became the Continental Army.
Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.
- Samuel Beckett
