Once again I failed to find the Reblog button. Giving You the link at the bottom.
I liked this post for many reasons:
First of all, it mentions a Statue, erected Especially in Honour of Women, “in appreciation of the heroic character of the woman who braved the dangers and endured the hardships incident to the daily life of the pioneer and homesteader,” as the site puts it.
Then We have the story of the man who ‘Struck’ it rich, yet had the Heart of Gold, E.W. Marland, (the statue in white, surrounded by pink flowers) who “was always very kind to his employees and pioneered employer paid insurance, eye care, and dental bills. He even built homes for many of his employees.”
Except in these Rare cases, those who made it rich have had no thought or concern about their Poorer Brethren. He who has 3 factories is sad if he cannot open one more!
If the Rich took better Care of the Poor, at least they would not be Sad! (Taking Care of the Poor would also mean Educating them with regard to Hard Work, Application and Many other things).
I also like Old and Stately buildings.
My Kudos to Tony Smith on this post.
