Many candidates are declaring themselves eligible for president in different parties, each one presenting themselves proficient in solving America’s problems in areas of education, economy, social disharmony, immigration, etc., often expounding on their opponent’s weaknesses and untrustworthiness in political and private lives.
Over 200 years ago George Washington was acclaimed to fame for truthfulness, in a cherry tree incident, Abe Lincoln for honest in walking miles to return a penny. Both men became President, each presiding over wartime eras.
George Washington’s father confronted young George concerning a cherry tree incident being cut down with a hatchet.
Young George admitted that he was the culprit, explaining to his father that he could not tell a lie because he had been instructed on the consequences of sin and he rewards of a righteous lifestyle. His father was proud of his son’s forthcoming admission of guilt. He forgave his son, explaining “no one is perfect and everyone makes a mistake … admitting one’s mistakes makes a father proud of his son,”
“Oh, yeah, by the way son, where did you get the hatchet?”
“I stole it,” replied George, “but don’t forget, Dad, nobody’s perfect.”
