Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address

The day the words of The Gettysburg Address by Abraham Lincoln, at the site of the Battle of Gettysburg, were spoken 153 years today, November 19, 2016, then 1863. We are still struggling to find that Freedom Lincoln was trying to bring to us all. We will continue to join forces in protest against those who would like to see some people not quite so equal as others, when in Lincoln’s words ‘all (wo)men are created equal . . .’ We will continue to work toward bringing about true equality for all. No silver towers to escape to. We must all contribute to the future of the Planet Earth. Eliminating poverty, hunger, homelessness, war, dictatorships, ignorance, police states, terrorism, and other senseless killings. We need to educate and find peace for humans, animals, nature, and the planet, or everything will eventually be destroyed. I would like to predict Hillary Clinton is the United States First Woman President and there will be many more women taking on the challenge in future elections. Some while we are still alive and others on into a distant future

when maybe all will be equal and there will be no ownership of labor but a shared economy with equality and a good life for all. Here’s to Peace. No more wars someday. We just have to stop The Military Industrial Complex from forcing us to engage in maggie-the-cat-paw-print1any future conflicts and to end all others.

Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address November 19, 1863

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate — we cannot consecrate — we cannot hallow — this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. 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 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.

    • Good words to always remember. Encouraging article I read re: the present occupant of the US White House. 20 months until our next congressional election. If you don’t think the Rebubs will be out of power after that – your dream remains in nightmare mode. So in less than 2 yrs we could actually be rid of him in no time. If the Dems take over Congress the first world of order is Impeachment & Indictments for all those presently connected to D.D.T. (the Dangerous D.D.T.) – especially Kellyann Conway. His closest counsel who was hawking D.D.T.’s daughters clothing & accessory lines. He’s charging people to visit his Florida White House. Watch SNL if you get it & want the laugh of a life time. SNL is shedding him as women impersonate his male cabinet members.
