Theodore Geisel, better known as the beloved children’s author, Dr. Seuss, who wrote “The Cat in the Hat” along with dozens of other stories, was born on March 2, 1904. Americans honor Dr. Seuss each year by celebrating Read Across America Day on March 2nd. I meant to mention this in my blog on the actual day, but forgot. I did read on March 2nd, though, and hope you did, as well.
Now, John Philip Sousa, was not born in March. Indeed, the famous composer arrived in this world on November 6, 1854, but he did become known as “The American March King” for his contributions in the world of American military marches. And, to tie into today’s post even further, he passed away on March 6, 1932.
Similar names, aren’t they? Seuss and Sousa. Linked together by March and/or Marches. There is absolutely no point to this piece, but if you read all the way to the end, thank you.
Peace, and march on, people!
