Quotes from a famous American. That was Darling Diva's project this week for school. So when I asked her if she had an American in mind to use she, in her just now learning about social studies way, said "George Washington, Mom."
The second part of the project was to tell what the quote means to you. Now she picked different quotes than I did, but as I was helping her find quotes by our famous first president, I came across two that struck a cord in me for this Tuesday Two.
Hope you enjoy.

"Let your heart feel for the afflictions and distress of everyone, and let your hand give in proportion to your purse." George Washington
