There are just some really cool facts about Theodore too that makes him so cool to learn about.
There's been a fair amount of president's in the United States. I remember when I was younger and i found out there'd been a lot of presidents, I almost immediately asked, "who was the strongest?"

I think Abraham Lincoln was America's strongest president because he perservered through a civil war, he repaired the country afterwards and brought us back together again as a nation, and he abolished slavery in the United States. Imagine you'd just become the principle of a high school.

Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” If there were problems in the society it was for the better good, because of what he did 53 years ago we now have peace between the races in the United
