I came across this quotation about a minute after I discovered that 92 years ago today, back in the spring of 1918, when soldiers were STILL suffering through the last campaigns of the First World War, Betty Ford was born in Chicago, Illinois. Be heartened - I'll try to be - by those words of hers. Do the best. Be authentic. Be like Betty.

[About becoming First Lady at Nixon's resignation] I figured, okay, I'll move to the White House, do the best I can, and if they don't like it, they can kick me out. But they can't make me be somebody I'm not." Elizabeth Ann "Betty" Bloomer Ford
