you ever taken a long trip on the highway? Have you noticed the beautiful
flowers that are planted along the highway? Well, do you know who
you have to thank for those lovely flowers? None other than Lady
Bird Johnson, the former first lady of the United States. When her
husband became President, Lady Bird decided she needed to do something
about the state of the highways. They were ugly and trash was everywhere.
Because of her, the Highway Beautification Act was passed by Congress.
Read her story and think of her the next time you see flowers by the roadside.
