ABE’S MESSAGE ON PEARL HARBOR DAY

On the Portland Park Blocks.

SAM_0049

“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.”

(via brainyquote.com)

From the Civil War to Pearl Harbor to the current state of affairs, the old rail splitter is still on the mark.

As baby boomers age, his words grow more powerful. He was 56 when he died.

We’re older than him now.
