Every 4 years we the people are granted the right to revolution, and we have voted for revolution 46 times. 45 different people graced the office of President of the United States – all with differing views and policies. They have all changed our country with a mixture of good and bad – even William Henry Harrison, who only served 31 short days, had an impact. We must look at Presidents, past and present, and remember they were/are human, they have made/are making mistakes, and even our favorite past Presidents were not perfect in their day. All Presidents were criticized for the job they were doing, or not doing, depending upon who was criticizing. We must remember if we don’t like who is in office, we are lucky enough to have the ability to change leaders every 4 years.
My recent trip to Magic Kingdom at Disney World was a great reminder of the revolutions the United States has endured, as the Hall of Presidents attraction features Audio-Animatronics replicas of every President of the United States. Seeing them all at once, together, makes it hard to not realize how lucky we are to have the ability to elect our leaders. We can (and have) revolutionize(d) our country every time we vote.
