Memorial Day 2016

hat 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 these dead shall not have died in vain
--that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom
-- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.  "                                                                                Gettysburg Address
                    Abraham Lincoln,   November 19, 1863


  1. I remember memorizing the Gettysburg Address in high school. Wonderful words of wisdom. Love your header!

    1. We had to learn that also and the preamble to the Constitution and the declaration of independence.
      Also back in the day we learned Shakespearean soliloquies from his major plays.
      Lots of memorization back then.

    2. The header is from photos I took a while back. I am a terrible photographer because I can't stand still! lol. Glad you think its nice.


I love hearing your thoughts and your visits mean a lot to me.
