Daily Thoughts 03/15/2014
This morning on the way to work, I read some more of No Ordinary Time. The book describes how ill prepared the United States was initially to enter World War II. It also describes how Franklin Delano Roosevelts first priority in the war was to help arm the allies, not just build up the United States military. Eleanor Roosevelt also insisted that in addition to military progress, social progress should not stop.
I checked the Facebook and Twitter for the Mount Vernon Public Library as well as the displays this morning. I got a call with a question about the program today on Sterling Cleveland's walk across America in support of diabetes that is happening at 3:00 p.m. There is a lot of interest in the program.
I spent a little time looking at the Poets House website http://poetshouse.org/librarians-and-educators/librarians/poetry-in-the-branches

I set up a program today for Sterling Cleveland who talked about his Walk Across America for diabetes. It was quite interesting. He raised over $25,000 for the American Diabetes Association. He had a lot of photographs from his trip as well as memories to recount which were positive and uplifting. He talked from 3:00 p.m. to 4;30 p.m. today.
