Abraham Lincoln

 
Like most people. I forgot today is Abraham Lincoln’s birthday. Lincoln was the 16th President of the United States and was credited with helping to free the slaves. I believe his words were, “Either all the states would be free or all slaves. A house divided against itself cannot stand.” I was paraphrasing what I remember from my days in school. It is not an exact quote. It is late and I am too tired to go look it up.
Lincoln should be remembered, along with so many others who have done great things in history.

Because he did what he did, I should remember him as I do Dr. Martin Luther King and Jesus Christ.
I did take the time to find a few of President Lincoln’s quotes. E was a very down the earth man. His quotes are simple and easy to understand.
