Park looks fantastic

Kudos to the groundskeepers and landscaping crew of our beautiful Vicksburg National Military Park.

It looks even more stunning thanks to the hard work and care of the crews who worked through the heat and drought of the summer.

Not only do I get to enjoy God’s beautiful creation, but man’s excellent stewardship of his creation.

I am reminded of my favorite quote by Dr. Martin Luther King: Jr. “If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he must sweep streets as Michelangelo painted, as Beethoven composed and as Shakespeare wrote poetry. He must sweep streets so well that when he is gone, all the hosts of heaven will pause and say, ‘Here lived a great street sweeper.’”

Thank you for blessing our community with your example of paying homage to the past as well as your example of excellence to the present and future.
