"If you would not be forgotten, as soon as you are dead and rotten,
either write things worth reading, or do things worth the writing." ~ Ben Franklin
America has never forgotten Benjamin Franklin because he did both.
He lived these words of wisdom by writing as much as he possibly could
and by doing even more. He became famous for being a scientist, an inventor,
a statesman, a printer, a philosopher, a musician, and an economist.
Today, we honor Ben Franklin as one of our Founding Fathers and as
one of America's greatest citizens.
