George Washington

This boy is George Washington, the first President of the United States.
The United States was established by the people who immigrated from England and Europe and settled in America where Indians had already been living.
George was born in February 1732.
When George was 16 years old, he worked as a surveying engineer for Mr. Fairfax.
The United States was under the control of the French and British military.
A British military officer decided to send a message to the French military to say a war should not break out.
The French military joined forces with American Indians and started the war.
The British lost the war, although it received assistance from its mainland the United Kingdom in fighting the enemy.
"We cannot hand over Virginia to France. Let's defend it."
The people of Virginia had Washington as their commander and fought against France.
Washington led his army and fought away the French military.
Now peace seemed to have come to the United States, but this time the British military behaved high-handedly toward them.
The British military imposed heavy taxes on goods to collect various taxes from the Americans.
The United States sent a letter to the United Kingdom and requested it to stop its high-handedness toward Americans.
At last the US people fought the British military under the command of General Washington in order to gain independence
Many Americans threw away their shovels and hoes but picked up their weapons to participate in the war.
One day Washington went to Sergeant Jack who were standing guard and delivered him a letter from his hometown.
"I will stand guard in place of you. Read this letter and write a reply to your parents."
The war lasted for 8 years, and the British military finally surrendered to the United States.
After the war, the United States selected Washington as its first president.
The United States was gradually establishing itself as a country while Washington was serving as its president.
Washington worked in the fields in his hometown until he died at the age of 67 in December, 1799.
He lived in accordance with this belief.
'You must always try to keep your remarks and acts upright in order not to leave any shame behind you.'

Now let’s connect Connecticut,
Cause 2 + 1 is 3!
Delaware, Florida, Where sunshine shines terrific,
Georgia then Hawaii, It’s out in the pacific

Idaho to Illinois, 
Then 2 more I’s to say,
Indiana, Iowa, 
No states begin with J!
Kansas and Kentucky, 
Where bluegrass is all right
Louisiana, Big Easy, 
Where jazz is played all night

M for Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, 
When they say that sate, 
The mid-west is the place I’m in…
Minnesota, Mississippi,
A state that says ‘spells easy, 
M-i-s-s-i-s-s-i-p-p- I for me
M-i-s-s-i-s-s-i-p-p- I for me
Missouri, Montana,
I counted 8 with M’s,
Now we say the N names,
They’re 8 of those again…
Nebraska, Nevada, 
New Hampshire is the 3rd,
New Jersey and New Mexico, 
New York is 6th I heard,
North Carolina, North Dakota, 
They make it 7 and 8,
Those are all the states with N,
Which one’s your hometown state?
Ohio, Oklahoma, and Oregon are O,
Pennsylvania, Rhode Island,
Make P and R, Let’s Go!
South Carolina, South Dakota, 
States that start with South,
Tennessee, Texas, 
They’re just pouring from my mouth…
Utah then Vermont, 
Virginia with a V,
Washington state’s a state,
Not Washington DC!
West Virginia, Wisconsin, 
And now you’re almost through,
The last one is Wyoming
That’s 50 states for you…
The last one is Wyoming
That’s 50 states for you…

The Dangers Of Social Media - Child Predator Social Experiment | video

When you're a teenager on Facebook -- or any social media for that matter, you don't always think things through. The most common social media infraction that most teens make is connecting with people they don't know.
In this video, YouTuber, Coby Persin, creates a social experiment to show just how dangerous it can be to "friend" a stranger online. With the permission of three teenage girl's parents, he sends the girls a friend request posing as a 15 year old boy who just moved to their town. Not only do these girls accept his request and chat with him, but they also agree to meet up with a complete stranger. The girls parents were shocked to see that their daughters would give out their address and meet up with a stranger -- they didn't believe it was possible! This is something that everyone needs to see. You never know who that 15 year old boy might really be!
