Abraham Lincoln

Today is President Lincoln’s Birthday. With all the rancor and pettiness seen in politics and our elected officials, it is a time to remember that one of the greatest leaders of ANY nation in the history of the world was our President Lincoln.

He gave one of the greatest inauguration speeches in American history (the last sentence) –

“With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.”
