Why These Four Presidents ? (inspiring reminder of just WHAT made us great to start with!)

I personally found the linked page below to be a nice, cathartic quick read.
A perfect - if brief - distraction from these gloomy times we're all enduring.

Gutzon Borglum selected these four presidents because from his perspective, they represented the most important events in the history of the United States. Would another artist at that time, or perhaps a modern artist choose differently? As you read more about Borglum's choices, think about what you might have done if the decision was up to you.

"We act not for ourselves but for the whole human race. The event of our experiment is to show whether man can be trusted with self-government."
-Thomas Jefferson
