Marquette, MIFebruary 12, 2014 – Holidays Ain’t What They Used to Be!

Do You Remember Abe Lincoln?  You know… the guy who got famous for inventing the penny.  He went on to start the Lincoln Car Company before opening a chain of theatres in the Washington DC Area.  That job gave him such a headache, he died from it.  Oh… and he was president… but (shhhhh!) he was a Republican so we don’t want people to know he was a good guy.

This is probably what our children are being taught in school today (if teachers are actually talking about Lincoln at all).  When I was a kid (a very long time ago) when days like this popped up, we would have to write about the person being remembered – you know – as if we were in school.  Today it’s just another day — God Forbid, we try to teach our kids something… (Oh, did I just say God?)

We’ve lost our way, but if anything should give us hope that we can survive and thrive, it is the example of Abraham Lincoln.  Through great hardship, he guided the country through it’s worst crisis; and kept his faith through it all.  Take a few minutes today to look at some of his quotes, or even just to read a few paragraphs of his life.  But PLEASE…not from the left wing bloggers who spend their time encouraging others to hate good people… Lincoln would have forgiven them for their lies… I can’t.
