Count that day lost whose low descending sun views at thy hand no worthy action done.
If a person cultivates his or her mind by reading books that have characters that strive to over come those self-serving human traits that are contrary to true justice, there is a chance of reaping profits for society through such cultivation. Tr was quoted as saying that he could pass examination on the whole about this 5 book saga by James Fenimore Cooper, The Deerslayer, Last of the Mohicans, Pathfinder, Pioneers & The Prairie. Cooper’s central character portrays the highest principles as a way of life.
This American can count many a day a loss before I had the good fortune of hearing TR’s lofty patriotic messages on good citizenship from the pages of history.
TR cultivated his mind by reading about his fictional and real life heroes. He in his turn offered the possibility to empower others to reach for lofty goals of doing true justice, because that was the constant message upon his lips and portrayed in his actions.
In his day he empowered people like Gifford Pinchot, Jacob Riss and scores of others. Where are the dormant people of vision and humanitarians of today, that can find the power to be heard through the aid of TR’s wisdom? I fear they are watching re-runs of sitcoms or enjoying some other form of relaxation.
Necessity is the mother of invention. There is a need for wise, honest and fearless statesmen, so where are they? Are they being cultivated with the proper lofty ideals? If necessity is truly the mother of invention and your minds eye wishes to count days as fortunate, you would be lucky to discover TR standing erect in death saying here is the safe course to travel for that which you seek.
Nathaniel Bumppo through the course of this American Novel Saga answered the call of doing justice to his fellow humans, creatures and environment like no other character from classic literature. His last moment of life is thought-provoking and raises the authors work to a level worthy to count many a low setting sun's days of work on this saga as credit to his life’s accomplishments when he heard the final trumpet call for James Fenimore Cooper.
