I recently received an email from one of our readers containing the link below. (Thank you, Elise.)
The article, first published in The Atlantic in August of 1894, warrants the reprinting by the magazine…and the rereading by all of us.
President Theodore Roosevelt is the author, and his message is important and timeless.
Still, we don’t remember the Old Money Roosevelt’s–who counted family members Teddy and Franklin among US Presidents, and Eleanor as our longest-serving First Lady, diplomat, and women’s rights activist–for what they wrote.
We remember them for what they did. Something to keep in mind the next time we think we’ve done something when we’ve tweeted, liked, or, in my case, posted.
Enjoy the read HERE.
