Abe


"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."

Amen, indeed.

That, my friend, is memorization-worthy. Anything remotely close to The Golden Rule has my vote.

Happy, Happy Birthday, Mr. 16th President!

For the 200th time HAPPY BIRTHDAY Mr. Lincoln!!!! I ♥ him...I always teach all about him in school....I find it fun that he kept all his important papers in his top hat and that he loved a great joke or prank....good good man!
