These famous words following another great political battle still apply today!
The world will little note, nor long remember, what we say here; but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us, the living, rather to be dedicated here to the unfinished work that they have thus far so nobly carried on. It is rather for us here to be dedicated to the great task remaining before us; that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion; that we here highly resolve that the dead shall not have died in vain. That the nation shall, under God, have a new birth of freedom, and that the government of the people, by the people and for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
The closing of Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address
A note from Bob;
I sincerely hope that all Americans respect what the peaceful process that our Constitutional Republic delivered to us yesterday! Politicians, respect the expressed will of the People and behave like Statesmen. Voters no matter which side, having won or lost, now MUST be “WE the PEOPLE”! We must be an example of How “Our System of Government” Works to a Dark World! We NOW, must be that “Shining Light on a Hill”. Put aside all malice and hate, and wear the garments of peace, love and COMMON sense as we move forward!
