The presidents on Mt. Rushmore had vision. Their lives were spent shuttling between the mountaintop and the valleys. They sacrificed, they inspired, they endured — as have so many brave men and women through generations of Americans.

President Washington called the United States of America “The Glorious Cause.” President Lincoln urged: “The probability that we may fail in the struggle ought not to deter us from the support of a cause we believe to be just.”

President Roosevelt believed: “No man is worth his salt who is not ready at all times to risk his well-being, to risk his body, to risk his life, in a great cause.

Why do some give so much of themselves, while the rest of us take so much for granted? Presidents Day is a good time to wonder what the Mt. Rushmore presidents would think of the country we’ve become. Are we worthy of all the sacrifice?
