Quote of the Day

Today’s quote comes from Eva Peron, one of the greatest First Ladies of Argentinian History. She was able to use her position to finally help bridge the gap between the rich and the poor and help thousands of people in need by helping create numerous aid services for the common people. She once said, 

“Soy solo un gorrión entre una gran bandada de gorriones.”

“I am only a sparrow amongst a great flock of sparrows.” - Eva Peron
