Dwight Eisenhower

- What it takes to make a man great is his foundation, training, and drive for the dreams that his mind ponders. Greatness is a term not often used with a name of one human being. Dwight Eisenhower was a great man, and I use that term in the most noble way. He was a man formed by his country like an artist forms a piece of clay. He was molded and fired for strength, but his inner soul has more meaning, such as a piece of Greek Sculpture that has been around for centuries. Most know him by the name of “Ike”, but very few know the man in the comforts of the White House, as he paces back and forth, or the long nights in the tent down in Africa fighting for his country in one of the most...   [tags: Dwight Eisenhower Biography]

Graduation Speech : Eisenhower Dance

- Eisenhower Dance: “Lightplay” On Wednesday, September 16, 2015, I had the pleasure to observe the Eisenhower Dance Company perform their “25 in the 25th Tour” dance concert. Of the six pieces the company performed, the work I will focus on is “Lightplay,” an excerpt from Eisenhower’s newest show, The Light Show, choreographed by Laurie Eisenhower.
