Dr. Seuss for President!

On Tuesday, March 2 Dr. Seuss would have been 112 years old!  Normally, I don’t give more than a passing nod to the day, but this year as I sat and watched the sound bites on the news from the potential nominees for this year’s presidential election, I decided I’d rather write in Dr. Seuss for president.  I learned so many important life lessons and found inspiration in his fun rhymes and silly illustrations. We’re never too old to enjoy a few Dr. Seuss quotes:

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.” drseuss
