He was known as a rough rider and a big game hunter to boot but he’s probably more famous for the bear he didn’t shoot. When his companions tied one to a tree Teddy Roosevelt thought it would be unfair… unsportsmanlike to shoot it hence…we have the Teddy bear. Hoping to give children something to do during this virus a friend in South Carolina came up with a great stunt… She asked her neighbors to put a Teddy Bear in their windows and then send the children on a hunt. When the family goes out for a walk to ease their boredom…to get some air… they could bring along a camera and take pictures of all the Teddy Bears. Her neighbors deemed it a great idea a way for families to get some exercise and alleviate some cares while their children…cameras at the ready would hunt then shoot some Teddy Bears. So in honor of a great idea…children of our neighborhood be aware hiding, looking out our window…you will see a Teddy Bear. If all our neighbors who have Teddy Bears put them in their windows this could be a wonderful game… and imagine if neighborhoods all over the county Followed suit…and did the same. A Teddy Bear in every window? from sea to shining sea? Could make a lot of cooped up children happy… I imagine Teddy Roosevelt would agree
