Did you every hear the story about George Washington and how he cuts down his fathers cherry tree? It is a short story that shows George’s honesty when he tells his father that he cut down his favorite cherry tree. By saying this, his father does not get mad, but gets happy. Why? He says that George should not be afraid to tell the truth, even though the tree had silver and gold sprouting from it. I’m pretty sure silver and gold cannot grow off a tree. Therefore, the rest of the story must be fake. Somebody must have made up this story to show how good of a president George Washington was.
