150 Years Ago Today...

The Gettysburg Address was given by President Lincoln.
He is one of my heroes.
I remember memorizing it as a child and it has always stuck with me.
"dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal..."

We had a great conversation with a lovely black waitress
this past weekend and she spoke of how much she loved history
and how far we have come and yet how far we haven't.
She said that she loved President Lincoln and his goodness.

I plan to reread that marvelous speech today.
I invite you to do the same.
