The US Presidents Remembered in February

February is short on month, but big on remembering our US presidents:
- February 12: Lincoln's Birthday
- February 15, 2010: Presidents Day
- February 22: Washington's Birthday.

Since 1789, we have had 44 presidents. Below is the YouTube video clip of the first 42 US Presidents Animaniacs - Presidents from George Washington to Bill Clinton. I find their presentation a humorous way to bone up on my American history.

A short biography of all 44 Presidents can be found on the White House Official Site link - Our Presidents

For wisdom and guidance to tackle the tough challenges that face our nation, our President and all our leaders need our prayers. Regardless of the person in office or political affiliation, St. Peter gives us some good advice. (Remember Nero was on the throne of the Roman Empire when he wrote this.)

Submit yourselves for the Lord's sake to every authority instituted among men: whether to the king, as the supreme authority, or to governors, who are sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right.

I Peter 2:13 & 14 (NIV)

Okay, now you are ready for that US history quiz or Jeopardy.

And God bless the USA.
