Restoring confidence

Calvin Coolidge (1872-1933)

Today is the anniversary of the death of our 30th President, Calvin Coolidge.

President Coolidge was described as a champion of the middle class and was influenced by a college philosophy professor, Charles Edward Garman. He summed up his professor’s teaching by saying “The only hope of perfecting human relationships is in accordance with the law of service under which men are not so solicitous about what they shall get as they are about what they shall give.”

Today, and going forward, it is my hope that we all serve with a purpose that doesn’t focus on what we get in return but about giving with a humble heart.

Trivia: Although 3 presidents died on July 4 (John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Monroe), Coolidge was the only president born on the anniversary of our independence.

      Thank you Patty. I make no promises about how much I’ll blog this year. It does feel good to put thoughts to words and then try to organize them to share.
