  •  Wow!!! (7+ / 0-)

    It is really nice to see some history on one of the most influential women in our nations history. I went to school in Miami in the 1970's and did learn about Mary McLeod Bethune. I also got my undergrad degree from Bethune-Cookman College in 1988. Her house is still on display on the campus filled with pictures of her life. What an inspitational woman!!!! Think about it. To start a school with 5 little girls, $1.50 and faith in God. That's what we were taught. The school's motto is "Enter to learn, Depart to serve."

    This country will not be a permanently good place for any of us to live in unless we make it a reasonably good place for all of us to live in-T. Roosevelt
