Every good citizen adds to the strength of a nation. Gordon B. Hinckley
While browsing a local museum bookstore I happened upon an attractive, blue with decorative gold design and text, 5 x 3.5 inches hard cover 40 pages book - about a quarter of an inch thick.
And bought it.
The content two addresses by Grover Cleveland (1837-1908), 22nd President of the United States: 'Good Citizenship' and 'Patriotism and Holiday Observance' - speeches delivered in 1903 and 1907 respectively.

As often my way, second read first.
A couple of days ago a reread of 'Good Citizenship.'
Beautiful too the message - a description of today's America; as if President Cleveland a prophet.
What might the consequence(s) were every American to read and take to heart and practice President Cleveland's message?
I don't know but following is link to a free PDF.
Be a good citizen!
Take 10 minutes.
The second address, 'Patriotism and Holiday Observance' is well worth the 10 minutes, too.
