Wednesday Wisdom – George Washington Carver

George Washington Carver was a visionary in the field of botany as well as an inventor during the early 1900s.  He spent a lot of time behind a microscope.  When we take the mystery out of that which is unfamiliar by looking at it a little more closely, we begin to make connections and understand “it” better.  When we connect, we begin to care…perhaps these two birdwatchers are looking at hope right in the eye!
