TJToday marks what would have been Thomas Jefferson’s 272nd birthday. As our third president, the father of the Declaration of Independence, and the beloved founder of the University of Virginia, it seems only right to pay him homage.

“Our greatest happiness does not depend on the condition of life in which chance has placed us, but is always the result of a good conscience, good health, occupation, and freedom in all pursuits.”
―Thomas Jefferson

Happy birthday, TJ!
