Lady Bird Johnson died last week.
Among the many stories about her, I found this one most interesting, particularly when you remember all she did to beautify the highways of America. Surely she had to give many speeches as First Lady and in her retirement.
When she was graduating, she was chosen to be Valedictorian of her class, but she turned it down -- she was too shy to give a speech. How much she changed as she matured.
I also heard someone say that she died, not from a stroke, not from cancer, not from a heart attack, but that she was 94 years old. How wonderful to have had such a long, healthy life.
