Independence MO: Big lessons on President Truman by Ann Treacy

Day Two of the road trip starts in Missouri. Turns out Independence is pretty close to Kansas City so we stopped to see President Truman’s home town. We saw his house, which is pretty posh. And we learned a lot about him – like he was a haberdasher before and after being President.

Also we talked about his big decision to “end the war decisively”. It was an interesting discussion about what we would do if we were in his shoes – and how glad we were not to be in them.

We also saw (from a distance) Independence Temple, which has one of the most interesting steeples I have ever seen. It was designed by Gyo Obata and was the headquarters of the Church of the Latter Day Saints.

And we got our kicks briefly on Route 66. And landed in Little Rock, Arkansas.
