February 16: Presidents

I have so much respect for George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. I am glad we have a day to celebrate all they did for our country. It's also nice that I get a day off work!

This is a poster I got at school because this year is Lincoln's 200th birthday. Abraham Lincoln is a man that fascinates me. I have read several biographies about him, and even more books about the Civil War. I can't even begin to imagine how difficult things were for him during that time. The quote on the poster is one of my favorites from him. He could have led the country to be bitter and seek revenge, but his message was one of forgiveness and love. It's a good message for all of us.

P.S. 2 days...
