Palin: Happy Birthday, President Lincoln

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on February 13, 2012

Most every day we hear disparaging remarks about our country’s constitution and there’s an attitude held by many that something which happened so long ago could never be applicable in today’s world.  Governor Palin, in her own way, reminds us how very important it is to learn from history and how words spoken some 150 years ago still have meaning and gives us the opportunity to learn from our nation’s past events.

Today, on what would be President Lincoln’s 203rd birthday, America still honors our sixteenth president. It was a long journey from a humble log cabin in Kentucky to the prestigious White House in our nation’s capital. The road he traveled was certainly not without struggles and hardships – from the loss of family as a boy to the turmoil of a war-divided nation as a man. His is a story of the true American spirit, the same spirit that inspires and motivates Americans today.

Without question, his perseverance and indomitable will contributed to the historical Emancipation Proclamation in 1863, changing the course of America forever and helping to usher in the sudden and relentless reform so needed at that time. Also, who could forget the words, so often quoted, from the Gettysburg Address?

“It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here 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 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.”   More
