“A house divided against itself cannot stand.” Abraham Lincoln
Today, February 12th, is Abraham Lincoln’s Birthday.
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.”

From my trip out west to past summer.
I thought visiting the memorial would be fun, but it was also
inspiring and I recommend it. Nearby is the Crazy Horse Memorial
which is also a recommended visit.
Abraham Lincoln was at Ford’s Theater.
Looking forward to seeing the new Daniel Day Lewis/Spielberg movie based on Doris Kearns Goodwin book “Team of Rivals”. I read the book and it’s excellent.
