I have a thing for this man, I really do.
So when my feet led me to this place today it felt good to read about how important the Ohio speaches had been to Lincoln in the beginning of his political career. And that he was invited to come by his friend Dayton.
Further across some of the enourmous streets I came to the gigantic library, I would have loved to go inside and find a spot to sit and read a good book in but I did not. However I found a sign that told about how Daniel Cooper is considered the founder of Dayton because of all the hard work and improvements he made to make it a city. For instance making the roads “4 poles wide”
It is sad to see so many broken people who sit there waiting, as well as broken buildings. But I could actually also sense a feeling of renewal and hope as well. Places for different aspects of care of people were visible. It was Wednesday Walk for a good cause, I believe it was helping raising awareness for Alzheimers, and quite a lot of people were walking, across the bridges, and so was I.
Tomorrow I will take a new tour, and find out more. Explore more about the Oregon area. We found a really good place to eat there tonight.
And btw we took a detour to Beavercreak and got a dose of Mall feeling so now I’m cured for a while, but Barnes and Nobles was nice 😉
