Thomas Jefferson’s 270th Birthday

For more photos commemorating Thomas Jefferson’s legacy, check out the location pages for his home, Monticello, and the Thomas Jefferson Memorial in Washington, D.C.

Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826) holds a key position in the history of the United States as one of the nation’s Founding Fathers. As the primary author of the Declaration of Independence, the nation’s first Secretary of State, second vice-president and the third president of the United States, his legacy still echoes forward to this day.

During his presidency, Jefferson oversaw the Louisiana Purchase, which expanded the United States by 828,000 square miles (2,144,510 square km). He also commissioned the Lewis and Clark expedition shortly thereafter to explore the newly acquired territory over the course of two years.

In his personal life, Jefferson was also an Enlightenment figure with strong interests in science, invention, architecture, religion and philosophy. These interests led him to found the University of Virginia and design his own plantation mansion, Monticello.

9/11 …….REMEMBER

For the record I think we SHOULD remember the events of 9/11. Those who say the images are too graphic, that it perpetuates hate, I suppose I can see how you see it that way but the souls we lost that day deserve for us to remember, to mourn. Those images break my heart in a million pieces and make my stomach sick every time i see them, but they help me to appreciate the everyday things in life that most do not even take the time to acknowledge, maybe not intentionally….the hassles and stresses of everyday life can take over, but those people who left for work in an office did not expect to experience such horrific deaths and images. That day changed my life and this country forever, I didnt even know a single person lost but I look at everything with a new POV. It is the most painful things that help us to grow and change. We should remember.

get it together!!!!!!!!!

i am ready, i need to move in a positive direction, i can not stay focused on what i dont have, i need to make the things i long for a reality! i need to take baby steps and not get overwhelmed with the enormity of what i face. it is so much to tackle but i think i can do it. i just need to do it bit by bit until i have a strong hold on where i need to be to be satisfied and happy.

Woo hoo
