THE STORY OF THE WHITE HOUSE
There is a building called The White House. It is located at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington D.C. It has been the residence of every United States president since John Adams in 1800.
Why is it called The White House?
The reason is simple. The house is painted white, surrounded by lush, green vegetation and a fountain that sprouts water, almost as white as the building.
Impressive isn’t it?
In 2009, history was made when a BLACK MAN occupied the WHITE HOUSE. Many people spoke about that event which shook the world.
But today, another story is being told.
Today, the WHITE HOUSE has become a WHITE HOUSE again.
For it has been occupied by a WHITE MAN.
This tells a lot about the changing situations of life.
What you see today may not be there tomorrow.
Changes occur all the time and we have to adapt to them.
As we join the world to celebrate another change in America’s history, let us meditate on the changes that occur around us.
