ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL — PATRIOT
We can demonstrate our love of country in many ways. When Bell prepared for his gravestone’s epitaph he had it read: Alexander Graham Bell Inventor-Teacher Born Edinburgh March 3, 1847 Died A Citizen of the U. S. A. 1922 He could have listed his numerous inventions and honors. But that he was “A Citizen of the U. S. A.” was his most cherished accomplishment; and it was his wish that such be engraved on his tombstone. James Hastings, as quoted in Encyclopedia of 7700 Illustrations, Paul Lee Tan.
