It struck me as a lover of quotations to begin this post with a quote from President Abraham Lincoln:

A child is a person who is going to carry on what you have started. He is going to sit where you are sitting, and when you are gone, attend to those things which you think are the most important. You can create all the policies you please, but how they are carried out depends upon him. He will assume control of your cities,states, and nations.

The quote relates to an Eagle Scout project to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of Scouting. They are raising funds to purchase and donate the life-size bronze sculpture titled, “Footsteps to the Future”, by Deborah Copenhaver-Fellows to the City of Prescott.

Folks, these are tough times for many of us. But I believe tough times brings out the best in us. I am a board member of the Prescott Area Arts Trust and we are acting as a fiduciary for the fund-raising for the great project. Please visit their web site for details.
