    Shown in this post is like a pinch of sand of what you see here. I feel all and especially the young and old both of this country, should take the time to go to a library or computer to observe the greatness of America in the turn of the century. The size of things, the art, the quality and the character of the people that made it great so we could inherent it. My opinion is we don't deserve it, but we have it. I could go on, but just look at the two pictures of what was not taught in my school, my children's schools or their children's schools.
    Nations fear us not for what we can make, they fear us for what we can destroy.

      This Expo was also known as "White City" for the plastered facades. We were from Chicago, and my grandmother attended as a child. She had a lot of tidbits to share with us when I was growing up.
