Since today is Kansas Day, we are featuring the words of one of the state's most famous sons, President Dwight Eisenhower. This is from a passage in Eisenhower's speech to Congress about the National Highway Program. While the speech was given nearly 60 years ago, the message still rings true.
"Together, the united forces of our communication and transportation systems are dynamic elements in the very name we bear—United States. Without them, we would be a mere alliance of many separate parts.”
—President Dwight Eisenhower,
February 22, 1955
