theodore-roosevelt.jpgIt was on this day September 2, 1901 that then Vice President Theodore Roosevelt coined the phrase “Speak softly and carry a big stick.”  I could give you a little more info on the situation of what and why he said what he said, but here is a short essay by Brian B. Wagner, who attends U.S. Grant High School, who is the winner of a Theodore Roosevelt essay contest in Portland, OR.  He can explain much better than I ever could. enjoy
